President Bowman tells Laird Brown how it was at Kent State. 
Standing upon a special flag-bedecked platform on June 18, 
1912, is Dr. John E. McGilvrey. He was selected as the first 
President, and now delivers his principal address: 
"There is justification for that significant German proverb: 
'Whatever you would have appear in a nation's life you must pu' 
into its schools.' And whatever you would have appear in 
the school in the form of knowledge, ideals, moral strength, or 
courage to meet life's responsibilities, you must present to the 
impressionable life of the child through the life of a teacher." 
Rain begins to fall as President McGilvrey concludes his 
speech, a "baptism" of the infant school, he says. 

"Developing Human Resources^^ 

The choice of our theme for this, our Semicentennial Year, 

was not made by me; but I would not know how better to express the 

philosophy which has guided and inspired me during almost 16 years 

of service on this campus. I have no doubt that our human resources 

— people — are our most important and valuable assets and that the 

future of our country depends on how well we develop these 

resources in their earlier years. That is the chief responsibility 

of an institution such as ours. 

There are many different kinds of activities scheduled in 

this, our Semicentennial Year. Noted scholars are speaking 

at convocations and conducting seminars which will enrich and 

stimulate the intellectual life of the students, faculty and staff. 

Noted artists in the fields of music and art will bring pleasure 

and inspiration. 

During this year a faculty committee has conscientiously selected 

some of our distinguished alumni for special citation and 

recognition. I believe that these are the occasions in which I take 

the greatest pleasure and satisfaction: These times when we honor our 

sons and daughters who have distinguished themselves in so many 

different and important professions. There are teachers, scientists, 

physicians, leaders in many walks of the education professions, 

including the Christian ministry. 

For more than a decade and a half, I have watched with affection 

and deep interest thousands of young men and women who have come 

and gone from these halls. My interest is in human beings, in 

the young people whose trained talents and whose development are so 

important in our society. Size of the institution and the 

consequent responsibilities have pushed the President farther and 

farther away from the individual student; and this I continue to regret. 

If I were asked to describe the change I see in young people, it 

would be largely in their favor. I have been pleased to observe 

the almost uniform courtesy and respect the student body has 

shown me and my office. It seems to me that in the last two or three 

years, in particular, there has been a renaissance of interest in 

intellectual achievement and in efforts to solve the many moral 

and spiritual questions with which youth is increasingly 

confronted in our complex world. I have been heartened by student 

interest in the scholastic standards of the University, their 

concern about cheating in examinations, their interest in 

eligibility regulations, examinations, and a dozen or more other 

facets we associate with quality in education. 

I have said many times in these years that it is men and women who 

make an institution of this kind effective and efficient. Bricks and 

mortar, essential as they are, are only necessary adjuncts to the 

human elements. When I speak of human elements, I am thinking 

of the faculty and staff which must be strong, able, courageous and 

working in harmony; I am thinking of the student body; of the 

governing Board; and of our graduates and the contribution they may 

make by their continuing interest in their alma mater. 

Although my tenure as your President is nearing its close, 

I can assure you that as long as there is life left in me this 

University and its progress will continue to be the major concern of my life. 

William S. Kent 

On a University Birthday 

by Don Webb 

"Fifty years ago a great thing happened," 
remarks President Bowman to 18-year-old 
Laird Brown, a freshman journalism major 
from Twin Lakes. They pause near a large oak 
tree by a driveway outside the Hub. A man who 
has devoted his Hfe to training and guiding 
young people into maturity gazes across a shady 
green campus filled with oaks and pines. "Let's 
imagine it's May 19, 1910," he continues. 
"That's when Governor Judson Harmon signed 
a bill passed by the Ohio General assembly to 
authorize the building of two new teacher 

training schools in Ohio." 

It's a rainy Tuesday morning the following 
September, President Bowman tells Laird, and 
a commission of five men stand alone near the 
Erie depot in downtown Kent. Damp and wet, 
they're completing a tour, including 14 north- 
eastern Ohio towns, to pick sites for the state 
normals. They choose finally a magnificent 
natural park at Bowling Green, and because of 
its favorable location and its beauty, they choose 
a farm donated by William S. Kent, local bank 
president and publisher of the Kent "Courier." 

Downtown Kent in 
1909 is a scene of 
activity. A slogan 
calls it the "home of 
hump and hustle." 

Merrill and Lowry halls are erected in 1912 

to become the first buildings at Kent State Normal. 

Elsewhere, in 1910, another philanthropist is 
establishing the Carnegie Endowment for Inter- 
national Peace. Irving Berlin is composing 
"Alexander's Ragtime Band." Stoves, electric 
fans, irons, vacuum cleaners and hair driers are 
invading the American home. 

Now workmen up on Kent's Normal hill are 
chopping, digging, sweating. "Kent State 
Normal! Kent State Normal! Finest school in 
all the West!" yells a chorus. "Kent State 
Normal! Kent State Normal!" Then a professor 
of Kent State meets some friends from Bowling 
Green one evening. 

"You should see how Kent State is rising," 
he boasts. 

"Yes, I was there only yesterday," replies 
one of his Bowling Green friends. 

"Ah," says he, "you should have seen it this 

Finally the corner stone of the classroom- 
administration building (later known as Mer- 
rill hall) is ready to be laid. It's Tuesday, June 
18, 1912, and in another year the institution will 
be in operation. Striding along a worn path to 
the special flag-bedecked platform is a man of 
medium height, with keen, deep-sunken eyes 
and a kindly, strong-lined face; these things 
make him handsome. He displays a confident 
charm that makes the people he passes know 
without being told that this is Dr. John E. Mc- 
Gilvrey. He was selected by the first Board of 
Trustees, appointed by Governor Harmon, as 
the first President. 

President McGilvrey, age 44, glances at the 
classroom-administration building under con- 
struction and then at a partially complete resi- 
dence hall (later Lowry hall). The buildings 
must excite him. Each will be two stories in 
height, with a "basement" on the ground level. 
Principles of teaching, history of education and 

psychology will be taught in the building on 
McGilvrey's right. This building will have 30 
rooms for offices, classrooms and laboratories. 
The largest room will be a chapel-auditorium on 
the top floor. The building will house all depart- 
ments and administrative offices, as well as the 
training school. The dormitory on the Presi- 
dent's left will be constructed in suites of three 
rooms. Each suite will accommodate four young 
women with a study and two bedrooms, for a 
total of 80 persons. A kitchen and accompany- 
ing dining rooms, capable of serving 250 stu- 
dents, will be included. McGilvrey mounts the 
platform, and in a few moments he delivers the 
principal address. 

"The Normal school," President McGilvrey 
believes, "is not limited by a narrow profes- 
sional aim. In the classroom and even in the 
actual work of training the ultimate aim is to 
broaden and deepen, to quicken and refine the 
life of its students." 

It is dripping rain when he concludes his 
speech, a "baptism" of the infant school, Mc- 
Gilvrey says. Then, Frank Merrill, board mem- 
ber, drives the corner stone into place, not guess- 
ing the building will one day bear his name.

"Trained teachers are needed immediately, 
Laird," President Bowman continues his story. 
"Thousands of them! Things begin to roll. The 
first extension program in Ohio is started by 
Kent State Normal School. Instructors are 
hired, classes organized, centers established. 
Full credit given! That's how President McGil- 
vrey is bridging the gap of time from founding 
until campus classes start." 

McGilvrey's purpose, explains President 
Bowman, is to bring the school to the students 
since the students cannot come to the unfinished 
school. There are a total of 29 classes at 20 cen- 
ters, enrolling 849 students. Four instructors, 
John T. Johnson, George E. Marker, May H. 
Prentice and Helen M. Atkinson, teach the ex- 
tension students. 

By 1913, the $150,000 state appropriated 
institution on Normal hill is open to classes, of- 
fering a two-year program. There is no road 
extending across the college campus. There are 
no sidewalks of any kind and few outside lights. 

Early board of trustees, l.-r.: John A. McDowell, 
Mrs. William S. Kent, James P. Seward, Edwin F. 
Moulton, Frank A. Merrill, Peter W. Doyle, John 
E. McGilvrey, George F. Hammond, William S. Kent. 

The brush and trees are so thick that Main street 
cannot be seen from the hilltop. 

First roll call! Forty-seven students and 20 
teachers answer. Their cost for instruction? 
Why — it's absolutely free! And board? Room? 
Laundry? Books? Stationery? Why — all for as 
little as $60 total for a 12-week term! 

McGilvrey by this time is thinking of in- 
augurating a four-year course for high school 
teachers, principals and superintendents, lead- 
ing to the degree of B.Ped. (bachelor of ped- 
agogy ) if there should develop a demand in this 
field of work. 

Meanwhile, the United States is thinking of 
inaugurating a president. Kent carries Wood- 
row Wilson in November with 524 votes to 
Roosevelt's 308, Debs' 213, and Taft's 199. Wil- 
son wins, and, later, the Federal Reserve Sys- 
tem is born. Then, other "firsts" are scored. 
First Federal income tax law; first ship through 
the Panama Canal; first transcontinental tele- 
phone call. And, at Kent State Normal, a first of 
another kind is taking place — the first graduat- 
ing class. Ohio Governor James M. Cox is de- 
livering the commencement address. It's July 
29, 1914, and 34 students will be graduated to- 
day before a crowd of 3,000 persons. 

July. It's an exciting month for K. S. N. in 
many ways. Besides graduating its first class, 
Kent's extension-class enrollment has passed 
the 1,600 mark. On-campus enrollment has 
jumped from 47 a year ago, to 537; there now 
are 96 men and 441 women. A contract was 
awarded last November to construct the audi- 
torium, library, gymnasium and office building 
(later the present Administration building), 
and this month a second contract was awarded 
to build an agriculture and science building 
(later Kent hall). Plans also are being consid- 

The teaching faculty 

will increase from 

21 in 1913 to 

361 in 1960 

ered to build another dormitory and a heating 
and power plant. It's an exciting month, too, 
because now McGilvrey is making plans to pro- 
vide a four-year course leading to the degree of 
bachelor of education (B.Ed.). 

Kent State Normal School, in a very real 
sense, is McGilvrey's school. He cares for it — 
loves it as if it were his own. He and Dean John- 
son plant grass seed about the buildings. They 
set out young trees and shrubs. McGilvrey 
plants every sprig of ivy; he prunes trees, he 
trims bushes and he chops deadwood. Also, the 
students, in a very real sense, are the Presi- 
dent's students. The numbers are few, and he 
prides himself on his ability to call most of them 
by name. 

By 1915, however, McGilvrey's ability to 
recall names is becoming increasingly difficult. 
There are more and more students arriving each 
quarter. Already the need has been felt to es- 
tablish a four-year program. The faculty is 
growing fast: there are Margaret Dunbar, li- 
brary science; David Olson, geography; Nina S. 
Humphrey, public school art; Clinton S. Van 
Deusen, manual training; May H. Prentice, 
director of training; and Emmet C. Stopher, 
training school, plus 15 others. 

It's July again and old faces are back. 
Alumni Day is being held. About 200 graduates 
have elected Albert S. Gregg the first associa- 
tion president. Alumni are talking over "old 
times" and someone mentions the Walden 
Dramatic club, the first Kent student society. It 
was organized in 1913 soon after class work 
began. The Walden club, in addition to its prim- 
ary purpose, publishes the first yearbook: a 91- 
page, 65-picture edition with 25 pages devoted 
to advertisements. The chestnut trees on cam- 
pus suggested its name — "The Chestnut Burr." 

Thirty-four students hear Governor James 
Cox deliver the first commencement address. 

The Walden Dramatic club starts in December, 
1913 and publishes the first "Burr."

Kent hall becomes the third sfruetiu'e 
to stand on Normal hill in 1914. 

In 1915, the state legislature appropriates 
$120,000 for a dormitory, Moulton hall. 

"Later, the trees will succumb to the dread 
blight," Laird is told, "but the name of the 
annual will remain." Concerning the Alumni 
organization. President Bowman adds: 

"The association will continue to function. 
By 1960, Laird, there'll be about 19,000 grad- 
uates of Kent and close to 100,000 former stu- 
dents. Alumni will be iound in every state in 
the union and in 27 foreign countries." 

George A. Bowman ( whose teaching experi- 
ence began in a tiny one-room schoolhouse in 
Morrow County, Ohio) and his young compan- 
ion are strolling away from the giant oak near 
the Hub and are moving slowly across the front 
campus. Late model automobiles with swept- 
back fenders can be seen sailing down Main 
street. The President turns to Laird. 

"Remember. I said a contract was awarded 
to construct several new buildings? Well, these 
buildings are now complete. Two stand side by 
side, right over there, you see, next to Merrill 
hall. When they were being built, four circus 
tents had been raised on Normal hill to house 
the overflow of large summer registrations. 
Classroom work, assemblies, even graduations 
were held in these tents." 

KSN Turns To Sports 

Even as the new buildings were being occu- 
pied. Bowman continues, the school fielded its

first basketball team in the 1914-1915 season, 
winning three games against local teams but 
losing all college competition. The squad played 
its first intercollegiate game in the newly- com- 
pleted auditorium building in the "Atrium." On 
January 28, 1915, the "Normal High School 
News" reported the game as follows: 

"The Normal quintet was defeated by the 
Otterbein machine, Friday evening, at 8 o'clock, 
56 to 5. It looked as if Otterbein could keep 
three balls away from the Normal. Carpenter 
shot the only field basket for the Normal; Cort 
shot three foul baskets. There was a large at- 
tendance — about two hundred. Goodrich led 
the cheering. Normal did well considering it 
was their first big game." 

The baseball team also played during this 
season. The K. S. N. sluggers won their first 
game over Baldwin-Wallace, 7-6. They lost to 
Mt. Union and twice to Hiram, Mt. Union 
emerging with a winning 9-3 score, and with 
Hiram also defeating Kent, 16-4 and 15-3. 

Then came football. But after two scrim- 
mages with the local high school team, the sport 
is abandoned. Not until 1920 will Kent Play 
its first intercollegiate football game. At that 
time they'll play against Ashland on October 
30, losing 6-0. Kent's next game will be played 
against Bowling Green, with Kent losing 7-0. 
Paul Chandler will serve as Kent's coach as well 
as head of the department of education. 

Why is Kent's early record anything but 
glorious? Some say it's because "McGilvrey 
doesn't see much point in emphasizing upon 
varsity athletics." 

The Normal "nine" beat local pick-up teams 
with ease, but are trounced by other colleges.

The first basketball squad plays two inti r- 
coUegiate games that prove disastrous. 

In 1920, the football team is called the 

"Silver Foxes" because President 

McGilvrey has purchased a silver fox 

farm adjoining the campus.

McQilvrey Symholizes Progress 

Indeed, classroom work is McGilvrey's main 
interest. His school is offering courses from 
household arts to manual training; there are 
food, clothing and the home, woodworking, me- 
chanical drawing and homeplanning, sociology, 
economics, agriculture, psychology, and art and 

President McGilvrey, who frequently quotes 
Emerson, believes in non-conformity and inde- 
pendence of thought. He does not grade by let- 
ters or numbers as most colleges are doing; 
instead, he grades them by simply issuing a 
"white slip" (passing) or a "blue slip" (fail- 
ing). His college is not structured on the semes- 
ter basis as are most colleges; instead, his oper- 
ates on the quarter plan. 

A man with vision. President McGilvrey 
foresees the growth of the institution. He fore- 
sees its responsibilities in an area rapidly ex- 
panding in industry and population. The idea 
of the Normal school giving its students know- 
ledge of the problems and principles of teach- 
ing, of the Normal school developing originality 
and individuality, of the Normal school keeping 
alive in the pupil-teacher a sense of the dignity 
and worth of teaching, spurs his dreams, and 

Laboratory facilities are provided and 
emphasis is given to individual work. 

Weavmg is ottered by the art department 
under the direction of Nma S. Humphrey.

strawboard, wood, metal, cement and leather. 

A favorite spot for skating is a pond 
behind the Administration building. 

from 1911 to 1926, he will work to make many 
of them realities. He will waken interest and 
kindle enthusiasm. He will induce men and 
women to think! 

Outside the classroom social activities are 
many and varied. They range from skating in 
winter on a pond back of the Administration 
building, to dancing round a May pole in spring. 
They range from week-end nights popping corn, 
having fudge parties, parading and singing to 
summer evenings canoeing on Brady lake. Rag- 
time is the music and fox-trotting the dance. 
Songs like "The Little Old Ford Rambled Right 
Along" and "We'll Play Cards on Mother's 
Grave" are popular. 

How 'bout the movies? Hurray! for the 
movies. But in Kent, the movies have just been 
branded as "an illegitimate pastime for Normal 
students" by Ruby La Verne Downey in her 
prize-winning essay, "Normal Students Should 
Not Habitually Attend the Movies." It appears 
in the "Kentonian," the college weekly. Any- 
how, so much for fun. Suddenly there's another 
"first," a tragic one. 

An open-air theater on the front campus 
hosts the first cultural programs. 

President McGilvrey thinks there should 
be an open house once a year and so 
the tradition of Campus Day begins. 

During War I, faculty 

and students make

at assemblies. 

World War I. Students leave Normal to become 
soldiers and make the world safe for democracy. 

World War I. One million young Americans 
are sent to France to help save the world for 
democracy. Students leave for service or for 
employment in business and industry. Old 
campus activities are curtailed, and a new one 
begins. Faculty members and students are 
making "The Big Flag" as a background for as- 
semblies and meetings. It will be brought out 
once each year, at least, in rememberance of 
those who fought the war to end wars. 

By October, 1918, the Germans have been 
pushed out of France. A month later they'll sur- 
render to the Allies. 

Soldiers and sailors who were once 
students return to visit the campus. 

Things Qo Qlittering 

Students return from war. Some are bitter, 
many are disillusioned. They are the "lost gen- 
eration" and theirs is the "Age of Jazz." The 
Age gets its name from a restless style of music, 
someone says, "that makes dancing an athletic 
experience." Forty million people rush out to 
the movies every week. Flappers, bobbed hair, 
rolled stockings, smoking in public and coonskin 
coats typify this glittering era when business 
booms, everybody spends money and almost no- 
body sits at home. 

In Kent, Ohio, a normal 
school is just beginning 
its climb to the top. 
In France, the Yanks 
are already over 
the top. 

While thousands march up New York City's 

Fifth avenue to celebrate the signing 

of the Armistice, Kent Normal holds 

its own victory parade down Main street. 


The William A. Cluff 
Teacher Training 
building, later 
renamed Franklin hall 
opens June, 1927. 

In 1923, $175,000 is appropriated for the con- 
struction of Wills gym over "Blackbird Lake.' 

In Kent, summer registration is 3,814 by 
1926 — the largest of any teacher training in- 
stitution in the nation. It's time again for ex- 
pansion! The department of commercial educa- 
tion begins. Courses are added, dozens of them. 
Wills gymnasium, the Training school (now 
Frankhn hall) and Rockwell library are built.

President McGilvrey, interested now in a 
project for international exchange of students, 
leaves for England. Then, in 1926, he retires 
and acting president T. Howard Winters takes 
over from January, 1926, to September, 1926. 

Kent's next president is David Allen Ander- 
son, 1926-1928. Anderson expands the curric- 
ulum to include more professional and advance 
offerings. He tightens degree requirements. He 
institutes pre-requisites for upper-level courses. 
Then he assumes the presidency of another 
state teachers' college in Aberdeen, South 

Months pass. James Ozro Engleman, who 
believes "Knowledge has to become wisdom to 
be dynamic," sits in the president's chair. He's 
dreaming. He dreams of campus beautification 
and new construction. He envisions a campus 
lake and a new science building, a new football 
field and . . . suddenly something happens and 
dreams fade away. 

Rockwell library, costing $250,000 memorializes 
a man who helped win the school for Kent. 


The first fraternity at Kent State Normal is

Depression! Hard times are here; no new 
construction after all. Nevertheless, Kent con- 
tinues to grow. No job? Go to school. Kent 
State's fee schedules are the lowest in the state. 
Its enrollment soars, 832, 1375, 1538, 2008! In 
1931 an addition is made to the Administration 
building and a Liberal Arts college comes into 

"What next?" Well — haven't you heard? 
The State welfare section wants to turn Kent 
State into a mental hospital! They say "too 
many teachers, not enough hospital beds." How- 
ever, no need for excitement; a strong fighting 

Depression. Jobless sit on legislature steps. 
In Kent, enrollments rise.

force will prevent the conversion of the college 
into an insane asylum. 

Things seem to be looking up everywhere. 
They're reopening the banks, incomes are ris- 
ing, the railroads are being saved. The New 
Dealers are taking over and people are dream- 
ing again. In Kent they're dreaming of a 

A Neil' University Rises 

By 1935, the Kent State University dream is 
a reality. A College of Business Administration 
coordinates with the existing Colleges of Edu- 
cation and Liberal Arts. A graduate program 
offers courses leading to the master's degree. 

Time advances. President Engleman re- 
tires in 1937, and a residence hall is built in his 
name the following year. Karl C. Leebrick is 
appointed next president. 

Like McGilvrey, Leebrick is a non-conform- 
ist and he promptly makes sweeping changes. 
Nineteen departments are placed in the College 
of Liberal Arts and organized in four divisions. 
Agriculture and library science are dropped. 
The schools of journalism, music, art and speech 
are established. Liberal arts and business ad- 
ministration receive emphasis, and, consequent- 
ly, men students exceed women students for the 
first time in Kent's history in the fall of 1939.

Gilvrey hall is 
built under 
the program 
in 1940. 




Fearl Harbor changes the plans of many Kent 
students. Enrollment decreases to some 
600 women plus a handful of males. 

President Emeritus John E. McGilvrey by 
this time has returned to spearhead a vigorous 
campaign for federal aid for campus improve- 
ments. With his help, the school is granted over 
$500,000 from the Public Works Administration, 
to be used principally for the construction of a 
new science building (later McGilvrey hall) in 
1940. Then comes Pearl Harbor and expansion 
plans once again are set aside. 


Marines wade ashore at a Tinian island beach- 
point to aid assault troops fighting inland. 

The draft or defense work causes the enroll- 
ment to dwindle from 2,707 in September, 1940, 
to 696 by the spring of 1944. And, of 131 full- 
time instructors in the fall of 1941, 29 joined the 
armed forces and 10 others leave for work re- 
lated to the war effort. More than 5,000 stu- 
dents, faculty and alumni ultimately see active 
service in the armed forces. 

Raymond E. Manchester, Kent's first dean 
of men, is launching a "penny carnival" to make 
possible the mailing of campus publications to 
the thousands of men and women in service 
from Kent. They will receive copies of Dean

On March 30, 1943, the 336th College Train- 
ing Detachment arrives at Kent. The campus 
has been selected as the training site for 500 air 
crewmen, and, in the next 18 months, more than 
2,000 enlisted men will complete the program at 
Kent. Dormitories are converted into barracks 
and cafeterias become mess halls, while even 
the 197-acre airport landing field at Stow is pur- 
chased to facilitate training. 

Meanwhile, civilian students are being in- 
troduced to new courses, including morse code, 
fire-fighting and map-making. Some students, 
most of them chemistry majors, are assisting in 
experiments on the top floor of McGilvrey hall. 
There, the B. F. Goodrich company is conduct- 
ing research in the development of synthetic 
rubber. Experiments will lead to the develop- 
ment of GRS-10, helping to solve one of the 
most critical shortages of the war: rubber.

"You can easily see, Laird," President Bow- 
man says, "why a plan for rapid expansion is 
mandatory. Buildings and equipment have be- 
co2Tie dilapidated. And only two buildings have 
been built in the last 20 years, Engleman and 
McGilvrey halls." 

The first step toward expansion, he explains, 
is to convert Army barracks built during the 
war for military housing into classrooms to alle- 
viate the crowded lecture classes. 

Then, in 1949, three buildings are erected, 
including a fully-equipped 40-bed student

"And, that," President Bowman concludes, 
"is the Kent State story summed up in about 25 
minutes. It's not the whole story by any means. 
That would take a book to do. As a matter of 
fact, you may be interested in reading Dr. Phil-

"Well, now I know why you say fifty years 
ago a great thing happened, President Bowman. 
Governor Harmon signed a bill to start men like 
McGilvrey thinking along fresh lines — and with 
a vigor that would persist." 

"And grow, Laird." 
"What about Kent's future? I understand a 
bill passed recently permits the University to 
award doctoral degrees." 

"Yes, explorations are already under way to 
determine the need for a doctoral program for 
which there seems to be great demand. But 
about greatness; if we're realistic, we realize 
we've taken only the first steps toward great- 
ness in American higher education. And, we 
must remember, greatness isn't ve,sted in build- 
ings alone. Human resources, that's what 
counts here. Minds! Imaginations! Real great- 
ness lies in them." 

"Yes, Sir. 'Dedicated to Developing Human 
Resources' — that's a meaningful slogan at 
Kent State University." 

"With willing hands and open minds, the future will be 
greater than the most fantastic story you can write. 
Never has youth had such a spectacular opportunity to 
break through the barriers to wonderful new things."

Kent State University at Fifty 

What once was the small Normal School of 
the Tree City is now the sprawling campus of 
color and swirl and activity. What had been 
farm-land and virgin forest choked with briars 
is now a dynamic University, "Dedicated to De- 
veloping Human Resources.'" The University's 
glory is not confined to the memories of those 
who recall its bygone charm. Its glory is in the 
excitement of today. It is in the dreams of its 
President, its faculty, its students and its 

alumni. It is in the minds of those who prepare 
for the exciting needs of today and the days 
ahead — for new horizons. 

"As we look ahead contemplating this great 
urban and industrial area of northeastern 
Ohio," observes President Bowman, "we get 
some notion of the enormous responsibility for 
higher education, to an area containing more 
than half the population of the State, which 
rests upon Kent State University."

NTFC scores big hit with ^^Damn Yankees'' 


Baseball season opened the second time last year 
with the NTFC presentation of "Damn Yankees" 
under the direction of Charles Kurtak. Adapted from 
"The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant," the musi- 
cal is the story of Joe Hardy, the world's greatest 
baseball player. A typical TV baseball fan, Joe 
trades his soul to that suave and sinister fellow, the 
Devil, for the Yankees' pennant loss. Transformed 
into the young man of his dreams, Joe helps his 
favorite team, the Washington Senators, win the 
pennant. Ordered by the Devil to keep Joe from 
returning to his old life in Hannibal, Mo., Lola's en- 
ticements are not too tempting, and Joe runs back 
home. The crack of the bat, the raucous sounds from 
the stands and the whack of the ball against the 
glove were all part of "Damn Yankees." It was the 
fourth NTFC Broadway musical production. 

The Devil, George Schroeder, in the guise of Mr. 
Applegate, does a bit of reminiscing 
about the "Good Old Days."

(Mary Ellen Doran) Wants, Lola Gets."

being left "baseball widows" by their husbands

At the same time, husbands Stanton Downs

Athletes put *^face to pie'' in May day relays 

A fallen bag-racer gets a helping hand from 
a gallant relay official. 

Burlap sacks, egg shells and pies littered the lawn 
of the Sigma Phi Epsilon house as the fourth annual 
May Day Relays came to an end. Co-sponsored by 
Gamma Phi Beta and the Sig Eps, the event tried the 
athletic prowess of 24 organizations. Members com- 
peted in coke-chugging, balloon-swatting, egg toss- 
ing and pie eating. Students had that "egg-in-the- 
face" look. Alpha Gamma Delta won the most events 
to take first place in the women's division while the 
Varsity K men took the men's top honors. 


A sticky face and a wide grin are the 
results of a pie-eater's dive 
into gooey meringue. Aided

Rain and cold weather replaced the bright sunshine 
and mild temperatures usually found at the annual 
Rowboat Regatta. The day's festivities started with 
Kappa Sigma winning the MSA soap box derby. The 
sky darkened as the motorcade with Queen Jeanne 
Huebner and her attendants, Jan Kozy, Mary Cum- 
mings, Marcia Laux and Til Umbach, left for Hudson 
Springs park. The girls spent the rest of the day 
fighting to protect their hairdos. Contestants braved 
the mud and soggy atmosphere to compete for tro- 
phies. The judges, stranded on a float in the middle 
of the lake, squinted through the downpour to award 
first place in the Greek rowing contests to Delta 
Gamma and Alpha Tau Omega. Moulton hall and 
the Industrial Arts club rowed to victory in the inde- 
pendent women's and men's divisions. Sigma Phi 
Epsilon took the gladiator contest award and Alpha 
Tau Omega pulled its opponent across the line to win 
the tug-a-war. Emcees Bill Cash and Dave Schiska 
announced the proceedings until their microphones 
went dead. Bobby Brack and his group, the Alpha 
Phi trio. Delta Gamma quartet, Jerry Stiffinger and 
the Sigma Phi Epsilon quartet entertained the crowd

Stormy seas challenge KSU Sunday sailors 

Instead of shorts and suntan lotions, the spectators 
at the 1959 Regatta sported blankets, umbrellas and 
plastic coverings as they huddled together in soggy 
masses to protect themselves from the cold, miser- 
able weather. As the afternoon rained on, the crowds 
drifted toward the shelter of the refreshment stand. 
Even under its dripping eaves there were few dry 
spots. Inside the booth Theta Sigma Phi members, 
fraternity for women in journalism, tried to keep 
from being drenched as Coke pipes burst. After sev-

sponsors of the event, packed up their wet clothing,

Campus Day 1959 opened on a sunny, but chilly note. 
The K on the hill was given its annual coat of white 
paint by Peggy Martin, Delta Upsilon's K-Girl. The 
crowd, wrapped in sweaters and scarfs, moved down 
the hill for the crowning of the queen. Escorted by 
Cardinal Key and Blue Key, Marilyn Hall and her 
court picked their way from Lowry hall through the 
mud to the throne. The shivering procession was 

halted several times while the girls retrieved their 
white heels from the mire. As her attendants, Judy 
Beacham, Eileen Heyman, Pat Jaffrin and Janice 
Swank watched, Marilyn Hall was crowned queen 
of the 46th annual Campus Day by Bill Lahl, student 
council president. Now a tradition, the colorful May- 
pole dance was performed by members of Orchesis 
dressed in colorful costumes.

Small parade sparkles at start of a grey day 

Campus Day had a serious side this year. Each of the 
undergraduate colleges held seminars on current 
problems. All alumni, students and parents were 
invited to attend. An alumnis luncheon was held at 
noon. Visitors were also guests at dormitory 
and Greek open houses and coffee hours. A 
carillion concert echoed across the campus to mark 
the midway point of the big day. Although the sky 
was grey, not many worried about the floats being 
ruined in the downpour. There were few floats. 
Grand Marshall Charles Paulas, mayor of Kent, led 
one of the shortest parades ever before the largest 
crowd in Campus Day's history, 11,000. Lowry hall, 
in the independent women's division, won the only 
trophy for its "Swing Into Spring" mobile garden. 
The sun darted behind the clouds as the first of 26 
groups began songfest. Girls in thin, summer dresses 
shivered as cool breezes blew across the natural 
amphitheater. But the cold wind did not hurt Engle- 
man hall as it won first place in the independent 
women's division. Kappa Kappa Psi topped the inde- 

pendent men. Even as those in the first division were 
singing, the spectators were slowly drifting away. 
It was too damp to sit on the ground and too tiring to 
stand. Finally the sun was hidden behind the clouds. 
While Delta Gamma sorority sang its first place song, 
the rain began falling. Plastic scarves came out and 
umbrellas popped up. Most of the crowd ran for 
cover. Few were left to hear Delta Upsilon, fra- 
ternity division winner, sing. Delta Tau Delta must 
have had advance word from the weatherman. The 
last group to sing, their black umbrellas were useful 
as they waited in the drizzle. As the last notes of 
songfest faded away, the day ended for parents and 
most alumni, but was only beginning for the stu- 
dents. Couples converged on Memorial gym to dance 
to the music of Les Elgart and his orchestra and to 
acclaim trophy winners. It was the climax of a 
memorable Campus Day. The rain was still falling 
as the lights faded and campus quieted after a busy

Graduation in June marked the end and the begin-

46th annual commencement. The campus hardly had 
time to recover before 4060 students came for the 
first summer session. This plus visits by prospective 
freshmen attending summer institutes made the 
campus a busy place. Again the Artists and Speak- 
ers Series presented outstanding entertainment to 
Kent students. Featured in one of the programs 
were Heidi Krall and Brian Sullivan, Metropolitan 
Opera stars. Ending the summer was Summer Com- 
mencement when 520 received degrees. Dr. David 
Wesley Soper, chairman of the department of re-

the crowd was entertained by the combined bands of 
23 Northeastern Ohio high schools and the Kent 
State marching band. The Amherst high school band 
was awarded a trophy for having the most members 
coming the farthest distance. 1959 Dad's Day was 
the first to honor women students' fathers also. The 
various dormitories and sororities held coffee hours 
and open houses after the game. The annual Dad's

Showers take first place Homecoming Day 1959 

Homecoming Day 1959 was preceded by a night of 
anxious waiting for the rain to stop. Displays were 
built undercover in garages, basements and every 
other dry place. Most were soggy bunches of crepe 
paper and papier mache covered with peeling paint. 
Some just fell apart. Sheets of plastic protecting 
the decorations were torn away by the gusts of wind. 

Following the example set by Campus Day and Row- 
boat Regatta in the spring, Homecoming was a day 
of showers, gray skies and chilly winds. But it was a 
capacity crowd at Memorial stadium which greeted 
Queen Nelda Norton and her attendants, Maria Web-

Unloading the car and preparing for a busy weekend 
are Kathy Woodworth and her Mom. Typical of 
all moms, she brought some food along too. 

The third annual Mom-Me weekend gave more than 
675 mothers a taste of college life. The girls wel- 
comed their arrival with large signs and especially- 
prepared name tags. Many events were planned by 
AWS, the dormitories and sororities. They included 
lectures, a variety show starring University talent 
and fashion shows featuring KSU coed styles. Many 
a young man found himself with two dates as Mom 
got an inside look at some of the favorite entertain-

parties in each dorm. Sunday morning mothers and 
daughters attended church services. After dinner 
informal teas officially closed weekend's activities.

Stepping smartly in the fourth annual ROTC Day 
parade, more than 600 undergraduates in the Army 
and Air Force ROTC marched from downtown Kent 
to Memorial stadium where they took part in the 
flag-raising. Then they were reviewed by President 
Bowman. At halftime the University marching band 
saluted Scabbard and Blade, Pershing Rifles and 
the other military organizations. Topping the day's 
festivities was the upset over Louisville. The first 
Army ROTC unit was established at Kent in 
1947. Training for the Air Force started in 1951.

souvenir-laden spectators wait for 
the wheel to stop spinning.

Barb Wells and Sandy Norcia. Those with good aim were 
rewarded with garters to take home as souvenirs. 

Piles of pennies pour in 

Penny Carnival opened this year in an atmosphere 
of barkers, booths and bright baubles. The games 
of chance included a roulette wheel, dart tosses, 
many legs used for ring tosses and "oops" — there's 
an innocent victim of Phi Delta Theta's "Tijuana 
Jail" peering out from behind bars. Goldfish, leis 
and basketballs seemed to be the crowd's favorites. 
Alpha Epsilon Pi, fraternity first place winner, 
was responsible for those plastic-bagged goldfish 
being carried by students. The Gamma Phi Beta's 
again placed first in the sorority division with their 
Hawaiian leis. Johnson hall, with its basketball 
toss, took home the trophy in the independent men's 
division. A new event this year, a contest for the 
best booth, was won by Moulton hall's "Robin 
Hood's Rendezvous;" it included live foliage. 

Bedecked with a lei and a grin, a little 

miss is taking in the sights and deciding 

what to try next. 

An unwilling "prisoner" is being escorted to the 

kangaroo court of Phi Delta Theta. She may be 

sentenced to a term in the "Tijuana Jail."

newest dorm won honorable mention. 

Pork Barrel 1960 opens to capacity audience 

"O. K. you guys, get out there and smile." MC Bill Cash 
gives a last-minute pep talk to performers 
waiting to go on stage. 

After shoving and squirming to grab the good 
seats, KSU students waited patiently for the 
29th annual Pork Barrel, sponsored by MSA and 
AWS, to begin. Introduced by Jay Solomon, Bill 
Cash and Tony Ocepek, masters of ceremonies, 20 
skits were presented by the various organizations 
on campus. The Delta Upsilon's spectacular "A 
Time to Live and a Time to Die" won first place in 
the fraternity division. "Death in the Afternoon" 
captured second place for Theta Chi. The Phi Delts 
were third. A trip through the Arctic to the 
Antarctic "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" gave 
Lowry hall the first place trophy for independent 
women. Terrace hall discovered a new way to 
start cars with its second place "It Started with a 
Kiss." The "Student Prince" of Prentice hall was 
third. Tom Troyer's orchestra played during in- 
termission. The Merrymen of Kent, a vocal group 
from the men's dormitories, sang several numbers 
before the second round of skits started. An old- 
time minstrel show representing the "Song of the 
South" won first place for Alpha Xi Delta in the 
sorority division. 

Candid close-ups of Pork Barrel performers reflect a variety of moods;

Winners receive trophies for movie-theme skits 

It's poker time in Stopher hall's old-time movie 

before the arrival of "Zorro," who saves a senorita 

from the villain and captures first place trophy. 

The audience was taken to far away Japan by the 
Alpha Phis. Their skit, "Moment of Decision," 
depicted the struggle of a Greisha girl in deciding 
whether to marry or to stay at the tea house. It won 
the second place trophy. The girls of Alpha Chi 
Omega changed into luscious "Wild Strawberries" 
to present their third place skit. Stopher hall turned 
the "Mark of Zorro" into an old-time movie to win 
the first place trophy in the independent men's divi- 
sion. The son of "Dangerous Dan McGrew" turned 
out not to be "Yesterday's Enemy" in Newman club's 
second place skit. The acts between the skits ranged 
from juggling to a harp solo with calypso, Cuban 
love songs and comedy between. As always the most 
exciting moment was the presentation of trophies. 

The gaiety of a German beer garden is 
shattered with the arrival of Hitler's 
storm troopers during the DU skit.

Christmas colors campus 

Against the snow-flurried background of winter, the 
traditional tree-lighting ceremony marked the be- 
ginning of the Christmas season at KSU. Strains of 
Christmas carols played by the University band and 
sung by A Capella choir drifted into the crisp air as 
President Bowman flicked the switch lighting the 
trees. Christmas trees, representing the trees of 
Scandinavian and Latin American countries, were 
set up in the library lounge by the International 
teachers and Varsity K. Intermittent concerts were 
given there by the Men's Glee club, Brass choir, and 
the Koraliers. The Merrymen of Kent ended the 
week of festivities by serenading at the home of 
President and Mrs. Bowman.

With the celebration of the University's Semicen- 
tennial, the Administration faced many difficult but 
not impossible tasks. The two main problems ap- 
pearing before administrators this year were the 
tremendous enrollment increase, an all-time high, 
and the race to expand quickly enough to meet the 
immediate and future needs in housing and class- 
room buildings. More than 2,400 applications from 
entering freshmen were processed this year. This, 
plus the large upperclassmen and extension school 
enrollments, pushed the student total above 10,000 
for the first time. The campus continued to push 
eastward with the construction of a $3y2 million 
speech and hearing center. Work is beginning on a 
$21/2 million men's housing unit; this will complete 
the men's quadrangle. In the not too distant future, 
needed classroom buildings will be erected on the 
old baseball diamond.

Serving as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences is 
Dr. Eric N. Rackham. Dr. Rackham teaches a course on 
"The Bible as Literature" in the English department. 

Arts and Sciences 

The College of Arts and Sciences strives to give the 
student a liberal and fundamental background in 
the humanities, arts and sciences. Emphasis is placed 
upon breadth of education rather than upon special- 
ization. The College also offers many courses de- 
signed to meet the needs of other colleges in the 
University. Formerly the College of Liberal Arts, 
it was renamed in the fall quarter of 1956. Cur- 
ricula in preparation for advanced studies in 
graduate or professional schools are also available. 
Students in the College may major in more 
than twenty fields. Presently, the College offers 
two degrees; bachelor of arts and bachelor of 
science. During the Semicentennial observance, 
the College of Arts and Sciences sponsored a con- 
vocation in November. "A New Canadian Adven- 
ture in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Studies" 
was the topic of the speaker. Dr. Albert W. Trueman. 
At the January convocation Dr. J. Herbert Taylor 
spoke concerning, "What We Should Know About 
Chromosomes in the Atomic Age." Dean Eric N. 
Rackham is currentlv serving as Dean of the College. 


A rapidly developing function of the College of Edu- 
cation is the promotion of the individual growth of 
the teachers and the public usefulness of the schools 
in Northeastern Ohio. This is done through consul- 
tative sessions, field services and in-service pro- 
grams. But the primary function of the College is 
the preparation of qualified teachers, supervisors, 
administrators and other specialized school per- 
sonnel. To prepare qualified educators the College 
offers a diversified but coherent program consisting 
of training in general education, specialized educa- 
tion and professional preparation. These three seg- 
ments are separated, yet are integrated in several 
ways so that the graduate has achieved compre- 
hensive preparation for teaching. All students en- 
rolled in the College of Education are subject to a 
Quality Standards program. This is intended for 
the development and the maintaining of certain qual- 
ities necessary for future teachers. The graduate re- 
ceives one of five certificates, depending on his field 
of study in education. The Dean of the College is 
Dr. Clayton M. Schindler. 

Dr. Clayton M. Schindler was appointed as Dean of 
the College of Education in 1959. He received his 
Ph.D. from Ohio State university in 1950.

Created by the Board of Trustees on April 14, 1959, 
the establishment of the College of Fine and Pro- 
fessional Arts reflects the growth of Kent State 
University in its first 50 years. Consideration of the 
possibility of developing a new college at Kent be- 
gan five years ago. The College of Arts and Sciences, 
established in 1929, was comprised of 21 departments 
or schools. This unwieldly size made the division 
of that College necessary. The new College includes 
the departments of architecture, home economics 
and industrial arts and the schools of art, journalism, 
music and speech. Degrees granted by the youngest 
College are: the bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, 
bachelor of fine arts and bachelor of architecture. 
These degrees distinguish disciplines or different 
patterns of concentration of study. The first class to 
receive degrees is the Semicentennial class. The 
College of Fine and Professional Arts has 72 faculty 
members. Nearly 800 students are majoring in fields 
in the College's program. The Dean is Dr. John J. 
Kamerick, formerly the Assistant Dean of the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences.

Business Administration 

The College of Business Administration, under the 
direction of Dean Stanley C. Vance, provides pro- 
fessional training in various fields of business and 
commerce. The College, which was organized in 
1936, has a total of 17 major fields of study. Among 
the courses offered to the business student are mar- 
keting, business management, industrial relations 
and foreign trade. In addition to the regular four- 
year curricula the College also offers a two-year pro- 
gram in office administration which leads to a pro- 
ficiency certificate. All of the work taken in this 
curriculum is applicable toward a degree upon the 
completion of an additional two years work. Total 
enrollment during the fall quarter of 1959 was 1578. 
Of this total 1364 were men, and 214 were women 
students. There are 31 faculty members in the Busi- 
ness College. At the College's Semicentennial con- 
vocation in March, Dr. Jean Paul Mather, president 
of the University of Massachusetts, spoke on "Busi- 
ness Administration and the Liberal Things." Var- 
ious outstanding graduates of the College were hon- 
ored at the convocation. 

Dean of the College of Business Administration is Dr. 
Stanley C. Vance. He is also head of the department of 
industrial administration and production. 

Graduate School 

Advanced study leading to a master of arts, a master 
of business administration or a master of education 
is provided by the Graduate School. Through grad- 
uate work the student gains a more fundamental 
understanding and a more thorough mastery of 
his major field and advances his preparations for 
technical or professorial pursuits. To receive 
his master's degree, a student must possess a 
broad knowledge of the literature of his field of 
concentration, exhibit the power of independent 
thinking, be capable of sustained study and possess 
a reasonable ability to do research. Kent State has 
been authorized to grant a master of arts degree 
since 1935. The degrees of master of education and 
of master of business administration have been of- 
fered for the past ten years. A doctorate program 
has been approved. Dr. Raymond M. Clark is Dean 
of the Graduate School. Its policy is made by the 
Graduate Council whose members are representa- 
tives selected from the graduate faculty and admin- 
istration. The President of the University is chair- 
man of the Council. 

The office of Dean Raymond M. Clark of the Graduate 
School is located on the balcony over the Atrium. Dean 
Clark received his Ph.D. from Western Reserve in 1933. 

Graduate student. Joe Peroski. director of the

Senior class 

Officers, seated Bemie Scheidler, Pres Standing, l.-r., 
Judy Beacham, Sec.; Ralph Myers, Treas.; Pat Whit- 
more, V Pres. They guide this year's graduating class. 

The senior class of 1960 could well have many names. 
It could be called the "Semicentennial class," as it 
graduates during Kent State University's 50th year. 
It might be named the "Leaf Rake class," because 
the class initiated the annual freshman leaf rake 
when its members were freshmen in 1956. In that 
year, roughly 2000 freshmen came to Kent State; 
however, through the process of evolution, or per- 
haps elimination, the class of 1960 will graduate 900 
to 950 seniors. Bernie Scheidler is the senior class 
president, and Roland Patzer is the advisor. Meet- 
ings were held in the Union the second Thursday 
of each month. At one such meeting, the class 
decided on selling KSU license brackets as the class 
project. At another meeting members discussed 
the building of a shelter house behind Memorial 
gym or giving scholarships as their class gift. Last 
year the class sponsored the "J-Prom" and as sopho- 
mores they contributed $600 towards the carillon 
bells. Highlighting the class's last year at Kent will 
be a senior buffet dinner and dance in the Kent area.

Student Council 


Student Council, recognized as the governing body 
of KSU, is the legislative body of the Student 
Government association. All students possessing a 
2. accumulative average and a 2. previous quarter 
are eligible to take part in this organization. Repre- 
sentatives are elected from the classes, dormitories, 
Panhellenic council, Inter-Fraternity council, Men's 
Student association and Associated Women Stu- 
dents — 38 in all. Before being seated permanently, 
they must pass a comprehensive examination on 
parliamentary procedure and student government. 
The Council makes recommendations to the admin- 
istration on matters of student affairs, makes or 
approves appointments of students to all student 
or student-faculty committees or positions, super- 
vises elections and organizes the freshman class. 
New committees are working on a finals week and 
the simplification of the registration procedure. 
All organizations which wish to be recognized by 
the University must apply to this body. It also 
selects the finalists for Duke of Kent, Miss Kent 
State, the outstanding junior man and woman 
and the NTFC director. Prof. Paul Kitchin of the 
political science department is the advisor. 

Arnie Roth pours a cup of coffee for fellow Council mem- 
bers Jeana Savu and Nancy Kerr while they wait for one 
of the weekly meetings to be called to order.

Court system 

The Semicentennial Student committee works close- 
ly with the Semicentennial committee in planning 
special events for the observance of the University's 
50th year. Students on this committee are repre- 
senting every national organization on campus. 
Presentation of the senior class gift in the spring 
will highlight student cooperation for the year. 

Justices of Traffic court, which passes judgement 
on all student traffic offenses, are chosen by 
Student Council for three quarters. Two members 
from the political science department and three 
students appointed by Student Council form High 
court. It hears arguments on points of law pertain- 
ing to organizational disputes.

Social committee 

The Social committee is a subdivision of Student 
Council, but acts independently. Seven students 
and six faculty members are on the committee. To 
be eligible a student must have a 2. accumulative 
average and a 2. the previous quarter. Three are 
elected at large; and the remaining four are ap- 
pointed by Inter-Fraternity council, Men's Student 
association, Associated Women Students and Stu- 
dent Council. President Bowman appoints four of 
the faculty members; the Dean of Woinen and the 
Dean of Men are standing members. Dean Patzer is 
the advisor. Social committee establishes and 
enforces the social code for on and off campus 
events. It holds trials and determines penalties 
for violations of the code. The social calendar, 
which is distributed at fall registration is planned 
and published by the committee. Planning the ac- 
tivities for Homecoming, Top Hop and Campus Day 
is its responsibility. Choosing a queen, selecting 
a band and presenting trophies are its more 
obvious jobs. Its hardest job is satisfying all the 
many interests of the KSU student.

The Associated Women Students is the only univer- 
sal women's organization on campus. It is the 
governing body of Kent coeds. Every woman student 
entering Kent State University automatically be- 
comes a member of AWS. The AWS executive board 
is composed of representatives from the classes, 
women's dormitories and various organizations. 
Every year the organization publishes the Kent 
Coed which contains the rules and regulations to 
be followed by women students. With the Men's 
Student association, AWS co-sponsors Pork Barrel. 
Its other activities include the Senior Women's 
banquet, the Presidents' banquet. New Faculty tea, 
Activities Fair, Mom-Me week-end and all-Univer- 
sity mixers. The group also holds parties for off- 
campus women each quarter. This spring the Kent 
chapter will be hostess for the Region IV Con- 
vention of the Intercollegiate Associated Women 
Students. Approximately 200 women leaders from 
colleges in 14 Northeastern states will meet here 
for a round of business meetings, discussion groups 
and speeches by prominent people. 


Every male student at KSU automatically becomes 
a member of the Men's Student association, MSA 
gives the men students an organization through 
which their views may be expressed. A service or- 
ganization, it receives an allocation from student 
fees to support its projects. The association spon- 
sors the Presidents' banquet, MSA Derby, Senior 
Mens' banquet, Pork Barrel, Activities Fair and 
other University events. A beard growing contest 
during spring quarter coincided with the Sem- 
icentennial celebration. MSA presents the MSA Sen- 
ior Service award which is given to the most out- 
standing graduating senior. This is the second 
highest award at KSU. The Golden Book, a hand- 
book for freshman men, is published by MSA. It 
deals with University tradition, hints on manners 
and other information geared to helping college 
freshmen adjust to campus life. The officers and 
four representatives from each class are chosen each 
year in a general election. To be nominated for 
class representative or officer, a man must have a 
2.25 accumulative average and 2. previous quarter.

Freshman class 

Dinks . . . the annual leaf rake . . . various class 
mixers — these all went to make the first year a 
never-to-be-forgotten experience. Led by their ad- 
visor, Dr. Lester G. Brailey, Director of Orientation, 
the freshman class struggled through New Student 
Week activities. They took a battery of tests, met 
President Bowman, learned the Alma Mater, travel- 
ed to the Health center for their TB tests, took speech 
and hearing tests and still had enough energy to 
attend mixers. Class spirit and enthusiasm ran 
high for the leaf rake and freshman football game. 
In November the freshmen presented their first 
dramatic attempt, "Desire Under the Elms." The 
fraternities and sororities also took their number 
from the class of 1963. During winter quarter har- 
ried frosh scurried to rush their favorite fraternity 
or sorority. The freshmen decorated the Library 
and Prentice gate for the traditional campus Christ- 
mas ceremony. The '63 class had the distinction of 
being the largest freshman class in KSU's history, 
but its number soon decreased after the fall quarter's 
work had taken its toll. 

Freshman leaf rakers work to clean up the front campus 
in their first class activity this fall. The Friday afternoon 

gathering ended with the serving of coffee and doughnuts. 
Tickets to a mixer were also given the workers. 

Sophomore class meetings are held in the Union. 
The class sponsored a mixer during fall quarter, 

and plans were made for a Samicentennial project. 
Their class advisor is Gerald Hayes. 

Sophomore class 

A highlight of the sophomore class activities was 
the class party, at which women students attending 
were given 2 a. m. late pers. Last year, the class drew 
up a constitution which was approved by Student 
Council. It was the first class to do so. The con- 
stitution provides for seven standing committees. 
This year's freshman class plans to adopt a similar 
constitution. The big project of the class was work- 
ing on the improvement of class meeting atten- 
dance. This was very successful, and a large number 
of sophomores attended the meetings. They were 
held on the second Tuesday of every month in 
the Union. Tom Norman, who was last year's 
freshman class president, heads the sophomore 
group. The class sponsored mixers and several 
sophomore nights, which were designed to boost 
school spirit by encouraging the entire class to 
support athletics. A committee was formed by the 
class to make special plans for class participation 
in the Semicentennial celebration. Gerald Hayes, 
director of alumni record affairs is advisor. He was 
also advisor to the class last year. 

Officers, l.-r.. Sue Galehouse, Sec; Joe Palacio Jr., V. 
Pres.; Barb Kern, Treas.; Tom Norman. Pres. They 
guide the class of 1962 through its second year. 

Junior class 

Toasting the futura oi the class of 1961 in an informal 
meeting in the Hub are, l.-r., George Kuebler, Walt 
Mika, Myrna Baker and Ruth Rhydderch. 

"Over the Hump," could well have been the motto 
of the junior class as its members began the last 
half of their college careers. Their freshman year 
was marked by a raid; their sophomore year Campus 
Day was without floats; their junior year has been 
calm, but it could be the calm before the storm. A 
new tradition was started this year by the class of 
1961. Underprivileged children from the Kent area 
were treated to a Christmas party in the Sub-Hub. 
Gifts were given to the children. The ghosts and 
goblins prowled the campus when the class spon- 
sored the Halloween Hop, an all-University mixer. 
The faculty and administration were pleasantly sur- 
prised when they received Christmas cards and 
birthday congratulations from the class. Their most 
important project of the year, in the eyes of the 
seniors, was the J-Prom. This annual dance honors 
the graduating class. Committees were formed to 
select a class gift and to select a project for the 
Semicentennial celebration. Advising the juniors as 
they begin their last year is Mark Anthony of the 
Dean of Men's staff. 

Junior Class officers gathered about the table are. l.-r.. 
Ray Fenn, Treas.; Judy Bowman, Sec: Jan Snyder, V. 

Pres.; Pat Alisau. Corr. Sec; Dave Wright, Pres. Plans are 
underway for the J-Prom, held during spring quarter. 


Not only do the music 

and speech groups 

lend entertainment to 

the lives of the 

student, but they also 

furnish an outlet 

for those who perform.

Kent State band 

Almost every department of the University is re- 
presented in the Kent State University band. Of 
the 100 members, less than half are majoring in 
music. Beginning with the Freshman rally in Sep- 
tember the band plays for many campus events 
throughout the year. Last fall old members wrote 
letters to incoming freshmen encouraging them to 
become band members. The response was so great 
that two concert bands had to be formed. The old 
blue and gold uniforms were replaced by a new 
semi-cadet style uniform. They become a formal 
blue for concerts when the gold tunic which covers 
the waist length jacket is removed. To commemorate 
the Semicentennial the band produced the record 
album, "Kent's Golden Year."

Koraliers and the Men's Glee club have joined to 
present concerts. Led by Dr. Ralph H. Hartzell, the 
group is open to any woman at Kent. 

Men's Glee club 

Organized four years ago for all men students, the 
Men's Glee club toured the state during spring va- 
cation. Directed by Prof. Donald Miller, the group

mas each yeai'. Tliey pei-fornied for the academic proces- 

sion at the Semieentennial convocations. They also pre- 
sented several concerts in honor of the anniversary. 

Orchestra, Oratorio give Semicentennial concerts 

Twenty years ago a small group of music-minded 
citizens formed the Kent Civic orchestra. As Uni- 
versity students and faculty members joined its 
ranks, the group became the Kent State Civic or- 
chestra. Today the University orchestra is open 
to all students and players from the community. 
It annually provides the accompaniment to Handel's 
"Messiah" and such larger works as Mozart's "Re- 
quiem," Bach's "Christmas Oratoria" and Vaughn 
Williams "Dona Nobis Pacem." The highlights of 
its year are the presentation of the annual Christmas 
and May Day concerts. The Oratorio guild, directed 
by Prof. Robert H. Foulkes, emphasizes training in 
the study of cantatas, anthems and oratorios. Com- 
posed of members of the University choruses, fac- 
ulty and residents of Kent, it presents at least one 
concert each quarter. This year it presented "St. 
John's Passion." To complement its programs, solo- 
ists frequently appear with the guild. Oratorical 
guild is offered as a credit course for students. The 
guild joined other campus musical organizations to 
record "Kent's Golden Year." 

The Oratorio guild perform's Handel's 
"Messiah" as a traditional Christmas pro- 
gram. Prof. Robert Foulkes was soloist.

Leadership conference with Laurels. A recognition 
banquet is held annually. This April members at- 
tended a regional conference at Marietta college. 
Its national publication is the "Forensic." 

Previous speaking experience or enrollment in 
speech courses are not necessary for a student to 
become a member of the Student Forensic associa- 
tion. This organization is responsible for all student 
activity in public speaking, discussion and debate. 
To celebrate the Semicentennial anniversary it spon- 
sored special public debates.

University Theatre 

Alpha Psi Omega is the largest dramatic honorary 
fraternity in the world. It was founded in 1926 by 
Professor E. Turner Stump. A chapter was estab- 
hshed at Kent in 1930. Membership is awarded on 
the basis of accomplishment in the theatre; student 
is admitted when he obtains a certain number of 
points. The group sponsors public play readings. 

The field of dramatic arts is represented by the Uni- 
versity Theatre. The organization exists as a labora- 
tory for the training students in theatre arts; it pro- 
vides entertainment for the campus and it is an ex- 
tension of the classroom to acquaint students with 
the dramatic literature of the world. Prof. G. Harry 
Wright is the director.

listeners in the Kent area, both on and off the 
campus. It is the "Community Voice of Kent State 
University." The station is a member of the National 
Association of Educational Broadcasters and broad- 
casts programs provided by the NAEB. A library of 
more than 500 albums provides a wide choice of 
classical music. Play-by-play coverage of Univer- 
sity football, basketball and baseball games features

partments within the University participate in 
special programs. The schedule is given an inter- 
national touch with programs from the French 
broadcasting system, the British broadcasting com- 
pany and Radio Netherland. A special wiring system 
pipes these programs into the dormitories. Donald 
Deemer is student program director, Prof. John

Daily Kent Stater 

Named "Ohio's Top Collegiate Daily" at last year's 
Ohio College Newspaper association convention, the 
Daily Kent Stater furnishes Kent State students 
with news of the campus. The Stater is published 
four days each week. Although it serves as a lab for 
journalism students, the Stater is staffed by students 
from every college in the University. The motto of 
the Stater, "Integrity Without Compromise," serves 
as a daily reminder to the staffers that "there is a 
difference between journalism and responsible 
journalism." On the wall is painted the motto, 
"Nothing Short of Right is Right." This was sug- 
gested by Prof. William Taylor, chairman of the 
school of journalism. An old tradition with the 
newspaper is the hanging of pictures of past editors 
and business managers. At present 106 pictures 
adorn the walls of the office. Another tradition is 
the continual flow of coffee from the "Hub." A new 
innovation last fall was the introduction of a Fresh- 
man issue of the Stater. Freshmen in the school of 
journalism took over the entire operation.

Chestnut Burr 

In the dark and sinister shadows of the basement of 
Kent hall dwells a strange type of student called a 
Chestnut Burr staff member. Mingled with the 
strange noises of steam pipes and machinery is the 
clattering of typewriters and the sound of gurgling 
water from the darkroom. If a staffer does emerge 
into the outside world, his purpose is usually to run 
to the Hub for coffee. As the days narrow before 
an approaching deadline, hours in the office grow 
longer, and study time fades into oblivion. In spite 
of the tension, now and then laughter drifts down 
the damp corridors. And in the spring, when it's all 
over, finally and somehow on time, the staff feels 
satisfaction and pride in the presentation of the 1960 
Semicentennial Chestnut Burr.

Arnold Air society 

Named for the late Air Force General Hap Arnold, 
who pioneered the establishment of a separate air 
force during the late '40's, the society is an honorary 
ROTC organization for all second quarter or above 
Air Force cadets. Membership in Arnold Air so- 
ciety is designed to further cadet interests in the 
community, ROTC activities, the Air Force and 
air power. To fully participate in the society, cadets 
must maintain a 2.25 accumulative average and a 
2.5 in all ROTC military courses at Kent State. A 
field trip to inspect the National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration facilities at Cleveland Hop- 
kins airport and a visitation program in surrounding 
county high schools highlighted the society's ac- 
tivities this year. The Military Ball was co-sponsored 
by the society. At present there are 21 active mem- 
bers in the society. Membership is designated by the 
blue and gold braids and service ribbons worn on 
the uniforms. Commanding the local chapter is 
Terry McCorry. Other staff officer positions are 
executive commander, administrative officer, adju- 
tant and operations officer. Capt. Maurice Smith is 
the Kent chapter advisor.

Air Force ROTC 

The KSU chapter of Air Force Reserve Officers 
Training corps is the 630th detachment. All boys 
are eligible for basic AFROTC. To qualify for ad- 
vanced ROTC, a cadet must pass an eight-hour Air 
Force Qualifications test and must undergo a strict 
physical. Established on the Kent State campus 
in 1951, the local chapter sponsors about four field 
trips a year to various Air Force bases for the cadets. 
During the vi^inter these trips are to a southern base, 
usually in Florida. This gives the cadets a change 
of scenery and helps to increase their knowledge 
about various bases throughout the country. The 
AFROTC program is designed to prepare young men 
for positions of command and to develop in them 
the knowledge and characteristics of an officer. 
Advisor for the local chapter is Lt, Col. Louis Stokes. 
The national professional and social honorary for 
Air Force cadets is the Arnold Air society. It is 
open to all AFROTC members, including freshmen. 
Members must attain a 2.25 accumulative average 
and 2.5 in military science courses. Upon graduation 
the men may be commissioned second lieutenents.

Composed of outstanding ROTC members, Pershing 
Rifles drills for such events as parades, football 
games and for all occasions when the University 
needs a color guard. The Kent unit has won numer- 
ous honors at drill meets throughout the country. 
Though it is mainly a drill organization, it was 
founded by General John J. Pershing to uphold the 
highest ideals of military organization. The basic 
purpose of the honorary is to provide a background 
of proficiency in leadership and drill. The organ- 
ization is able to give its men a sample of actual 
warfare by utilizing tactical information and field 
programs. Founded at the University of Nebraska in 
1894 as a national honor society the Pershing Rifles 
has grown to be the largest military fraternity 
in the country. The KSU chapter of Pershing 
Rifles is Company K, first regiment. Organized 
October 29, 1949, the local group is advised by 
Lt. Col. Robert C. Dalrymple and M. Sgt. Charles 
W. Crusa. The insignia is a blue and white braid 
worn over the left shoulder. The Kent State unit

Scabbard and Blade, national military honor so- 
ciety, is the only all-service Reserve Officers 
Training Corps honorary. It was founded at the 
University of Wisconsin. The local chapter is 
Company M8. The purpose of Scabbard and Blade 
is primarily to raise the standard of military educa- 
tion in American colleges and universities; to unite 
in closer relationship their military departments; 
to encourage and foster the essential qualities of 
good and efficient officers and to promote friend- 
ship and good fellowship among cadet officers. 
The local chapter was founded in 1949. It co-spon- 
sors the annual Military Ball with the Arnold Air 
society at Meyers Lake in Canton. It also sponsors an 
Activation Ball during fall quarter. In the spring 
it holds orientation classes for the entire junior 
class of Army ROTC who will be going to summer 
camp. Company M8 invites speakers to talk to 
members and uses films to broaden the cadets' 
knowledge and understanding of military science. 
It also assists the military department in many ways. 
Advisor for Company M8 is Lt. Col. G. Neil Wilcox.

group holds suppers in the Congregational church. 

Eight Protestant denominations are represented 
in United Christian fellowship. It is one of five 
such religious groups in the United States. The 
denominations are: Baptist, Congregational, Di- 
sciples of Christ, Episcopal, Evangelical and Re- 
formed, Evangelical United Brethren, Presbyterian 
and Universalist. But any student, regardless of 
religious affiliation, may join the group. UCF hopes 
to keep the Christian gospel a living reality for Kent 
State University students. It provides Christian 
fellowship, counseling and worship for all members. 
Retreats are held each spring and fall. Other activ- 
ities are Sunday evening meetings, Wednesday' 
coffee-hours, Bible studies and impromptu discus- 
sions. There is a semi-formal dance winter quarter. 
To supplement the foreign student aid fund, the 
group sells sandwiches and ice cream in dormitories 
and some sorority and fraternity houses. The group, 
part of the United Student Christian council, main- 
tains a UCF house where members may go at any 
time to participate in lively discussions or just to 
relax. There is also a chapel at the House.

Sigma Theta Epsilon 

"We are workers together with God through the 
church" is the motto of Sigma Theta Epsilon, na- 
tional Methodist men's fraternity. This philosophy 
is shown through the fraternity's service to the 
church, school and community. Members serve as 
ushers during Sunday worship services at the Kent 
Methodist church. Each Easter Sigma Theta Epsilon 
and Kappa Phi, the national service sorority for 
Methodist women, co-sponsor a "Meal In the Upper 
Room." Only a ritual led by The Rev. Joe Brown 
Love, director of the Wesley foundation, breaks the 
silent service. In addition to service projects the 
group has an active social schedule. The high point 
of this is the annual Sweetheart formal with Kappa 
Phi. During the spring quarter a banquet is held 
to celebrate Founder's Day. The fraternity partici- 
pates in the independent men's division of intra- 
murals and Songfest. Installed as the Sigma chapter 
at Kent in 1949, Sigma Theta Epsilon stresses coop- 
eration with other religious organizations. Member- 
ship is open to all Protestant men. Rev. Love is the 
advisor to the fraternity.

Any Methodist woman on campus may pledge Kappa 
Phi either fall or winter quarter. The pledge 
period is twelve weeks. Installed in 1948 at Kent 
State, the Alpha Lambda chapter of Kappa Phi has 
as its motto "Others." In order to fulfill this 
motto the members of this service club for Metho- 
dist women undertake such projects as parties for 
children in hospitals and boxes of food and cloth- 
ing for needy families at Thanksgiving and Christ- 
mas time. The group plans social functions with the 
Methodist men's fraternity; the highlight of these 
is the Sweetheart formal held winter quarter. 
Kappa Phi's participate in Campus Day songfest. 
At bi-monthly meetings the girls have parties for 
prospective pledges, hear speakers, learn some 
of the many Kappa Phi songs and have devotional 
programs. One of the traditions of the group is 
the Christmas Eve letters. At this time women 
all over the United States write a letter to one 
of their sisters expressing the thoughts that this 
season of the year brings to their minds. Head- 
quarters for the organization is Wesley house.

Wesley foundation 

Directed by the Rev. and Mrs. Joe Brown Love, 
this religious group works together to develop 
social, educational and spiritual growth of the 
Kent State student. It sponsors Sunday School 
discussions, coffee hours, suppers and a special 
coffee hour for commuters. One of the outstand- 
ing segments of Wesley is their dance and drama 
guild. This talented group of students presents 
religious drama in the form of plays, readings 
and modern dance. They perform throughout Ohio 
and are touring the South and Florida during 
spring vacation. Recently the guild attended the 
Methodist Workers' conference in Cincinnati. The 
Foundation also sponsors a retreat every Saturday 
evening at the Wesley house; these social gather- 
ings have various themes. Sunday is the big day 
for the group. An early coffee hour is followed 
by Sunday School. Evening activities include a 
supper and business and religious meetings with 
speakers on world affairs. Although it is Methodist 
sponsored, membership in the Wesley foundation 
is open to students of all denominations. 

Eastern Orthodox 

The Eastern Orthodox fellowship is a representa- 
tive organization of approximately 150 Orthodox 
students on the Kent State campus. The Fellow- 
ship strives to satisfy the spiritual needs of its 
'members by sponsoring periodical religious ser- 
vices on campus with Orthodox priests of neigh- 
boring communities officiating. Members of EOF 
try to further and create a better understanding 
of Orthodoxy and to promote religious, educational, 
cultural and social activities on campus. Special 
hours are also kept for student counseling by the 
organization's spiritual advisor, the Very Rev. Peter 
Rozdelsky. The EOF endeavors to maintain good 
student relations by offering social events for all its 
members. Fireside parties are familiar to all EOF 
members. A spring picnic is also held. One of the 
highlights of the organization's activities is the an- 
nual presentation of Christmas gifts to the members 
of the Brotherhood of Saint John, House of Mercy, 
Old Age Home, in Hiram Rapids, Ohio. The local 
chapter is a member of the EOF of the state of Ohio.

Newman club 

Established by Cardinal John Henry Newman for 
Catholic students on secular campuses, Newman club 
keeps Catholicism alive. It provides adult Cath- 
olic education, gives the right emphasis to God's 
place and the church's importance in a student's 
life and trains young lay leaders on campus. All 
Catholics and non-Catholics who are interested in 
the goals and purposes of the group may belong. 
Mass is celebrated every morning in the Union; 
members meet each afternoon to say the Rosary. 
During the week coffee hours are held. Catholics 
and those interested in learning about the faith 
may attend religion classes. The Newman club hopes 
to begin building its new chapel behind the speech 
and music center. Among its many social functions 
are the Pilgrims' Prom, Mardi Gras, Autumn Leaf 
Twirl, hayrides and informal parties. Newman club 
participates in Pork Barrel, Campus Day and Row- 
boat Regatta. The KSU chapter, established in 1936, 
is part of the Ohio Valley province which holds a 
convention in the spring. Delegates from Kent 
attend the national convention held in the fall. The 
Rev. Fr. John J. Daum is the advisor.

The Lutheran Student fellowship provides a pro- 
gram which is spiritual, cultural, social and athletic. 
Through it, Lutheranites may better understand 
their religion. The Town and Gown dinner, hay- 
rides and cost suppers are some of its activities. A 
student center is open daily for those wishing to 
relax, watch TV or to just talk. 

The name Gamma Delta embodies the aims of the or- 
ganization. Gamma signifies gnosis and means 
Christian knowledge; Delta signifies diakonia and 
means Christian service. The specific purposes are 
to foster study of the Bible, to spread the scriptural 
philosophy of life and to train Lutheran students 
for Christian service to God and man.

Hillel, the national organization for Jewish students, 
wants to attain cultural, religious and social fellow- 
ship. To do this it promotes unity and understand- 
ing among the Jewish students and with groups of 
other religious faiths on campus. It is a co-sponsor 
of COR. At religious programs members of the 
group hear lecturers, discuss current events and 
quiz one another on religious and general know- 
ledge. The local Hillel and counselorships from 
Youngstown university. Western Reserve and other 
area universities have quarterly dances. Each quar- 
ter the KSU and the Akron university groups hold a 
joint dance at the Akron Jewish center. These plus 
many informal get-togethers, movies and parties 
provide an active social life for organization mem- 
bers. Special programs are planned to emphasize 
the religious holidays and celebrations. Established 
at Kent State only seven years ago the local B'nai- 
B'rith counselorship is one of the larger religious 
organizations on campus. Every Jewish student may 
become a member of Hillel. Dr. Martin Baron of 
the psychology department is advisor. 

Father Zimmerman, working in Japan, 
gave his thesis on birth control and 
the population explosion. 

The Reverend Andre Trocme, director of the Maison De 
La Reconciliation of Versailles, opened the Conference. 


Religious council 

The Conference on Religion vv'as held during two 
quarters, fall and winter, for the first time this 
year. Previously, a week-long program was observed 
once a year. The convocations were held Nov. 17 
and Jan. 26. Conference on Religion is held an- 
nually to emphasize religion's place in the lives of 
the Kent State University students. 

The University Religious council at Kent State is 
composed of two representatives from each religion 
on campus, and a staff member. The Council's func- 
tion is to develop understanding between the mem- 
bers of various religious groups, to correlate the 
work of the different organizations and to sponsor 
certain co-operative projects, such as COR.

KSU's honorary 

organizations and clubs 

demand both desire 

and achievement from 

their members 

in serving the 



Blue Key 

Membership in Blue Key is one of the highest honoi's 
a man can receive at Kent State. "Serving I Live" 
is the group's motto. The members try to uphold 
the high standards of their school and the principles 
of their country. Membership in this national service 
fraternity requires that the student have junior or 
senior standing at the University and a point 
average well above the all-men's average. He must 
also possess leadership qualities, a record of ser- 
vice to the University and must participate in campus 
activities. Blue Key members sponsor the annual 
publication of the "Blue Key," a campus-wide stu- 
dent directory which contains the names, addresses 
and telephone numbers of all KSU students, faculty 
members and administrators. Blue Key also co- 
sponsors Penny Carnival with Cardinal Key, wom- 
en's national service honorary. Profits from this 
spring-quarter activity are used to provide three an- 
ual scholarships and to finance the Penny Stater 
fund, which sends Daily Kent Staters to ex-students 
in the armed forces.

In spite of its small membership. Laurels is one of 
the most active groups on campus. Its purpose is service. 

The greatest honor that a senior woman at Kent 
State can receive is membership in Laurels, the 
senior women's honorary. Requirements for mem- 
bership are leadership, scholarship, character and 
service. The primary purpose of the group is to 
promote a feeling of loyalty to Kent State. Other 
purposes are to advance a spirit of service and 
fellowship among University women, to maintain 
high scholarship, to encourage leadership and to 
develop character. The women sponsor the annual 
Leadership conference, act as hostesses at the 
Scholarship tea, work with foreign students and 
form an honor guard at senior commencement. Ad- 
visors are Dean Margaret Forsythe, Mrs. Roger 
Shaw and Mrs. Charles Keith. The members hold 
occasional dinners together as well as relaxed busi- 
ness meetings at advisors' homes. The group was 
founded at Kent State in 1955 and became known 
as Laurels in 1956. The women follow no stated 
motto, believing instead that "In place of words 
we seek thoughts and actions always." New mem- 
bers are tapped early in the morning Honors Day. 
They are awakened at their dormitories or sorority 
houses and then treated to an early breakfast.

Karl Chesnutt, Adv.; Marty Kane, Pres. 

The only organization on campus designed speci- 
fically for varsity athletes is Varsity K. This club 
for lettermen was founded at Kent in 1927. The 
objectives of the group are to unite all "K" men 
of the campus and to promote in every proper and 
constructive way student participation in physical 
education, recreation and athletics. The group also 
strives to maintain ties between Varsity K alumni 
and the University through a periodical called the 
"Varsity K Newsletter." Chief among the group's 
yearly activities is the annual Varsity K hop held 
during spring quarter. The dance is highlighted 
by the selection of a queen and her court. The Friday 
before the dance is especially designated "K" Day. 
A newly-initiated activity is an annual visit to the 
Children's hospital in Akron. Members take gifts 
and good humor to the bedsides of the children 
and spend the whole day visiting with them. In 
keeping with their charitable program, the 
members of Varsity K took a group of orphans 
to one of the Kent State home football games. 


Industrial Arts club 

Drawn together by a common interest in design- 
ing, building and planning, the members of the 
Industrial Arts club are majors and minors in that 
field. Founded in 1912, the purposes of the club 
are both professional and social. During the year 
the members invite prominent men from industry 
as speakers, hold panel discussions and serve as 
hosts for the winter meeting of the Northeast Ohio 
Industrial Arts association. Further knowledge of 
industrial arts is gained through the organization's 
meetings. Kent delegates also attend a state-wide 
convention. Members work on art exhibits, house 
designing and woodworking. These projects give 
the students an opportunity to develop creativity and 
practical work under the critical guidance of instruc- 
tors who are in the field. Members of the club also 
enjoy picnics, a traditional dance in the spring and a 
fall pancake supper for the freshmen. Keeping up 
a good record of campus activities and competition, 
members of the club took first place in the row- 
ing contest during last spring's Rowboat Regatta.

press themselves by singing and to represent KSU. 
Membership is entirely voluntary. Sponsored by all

Student Architects 

Building a panographic map of the campus was one 
of the projects of the Student AIA this year. Mem- 
bers built the 16 ft. by 12 ft. display under the 
direction of Prof. Joseph Morbito. The map was 
placed in the Library lounge as part of the Semi- 
centennial commemoration. Bob Ahrens presided 
over the Semicentennial activities of the group. 
The student association, established in 1955 by the 
Eastern Ohio chapter of AIA, was first known 
as the Kent Architectural society. The members 
are bound together by their interest in the pro- 
fession. The organization strives to further the 
understanding and acquaintance between students 
and professional men. It also works to advance the 
general public's understanding of architecture. Mem- 
bership in the student chapter is the first step in 
obtaining membership in the national. Many Kent 
graduates are presently junior or associate members. 
The group entertains noted speakers, takes field trips 
and holds dinner meetings. All members of the 
society are working toward a bachelor of architec- 
ture degree which is a five year program.

Kappa Delta Pi is a national honorary for outstand- 
ing students in education. Requirements for mem- 
bership are a scholastic average more than a 3. and 
a sincere interest and proficiency in the educational 
field. Purposes of the fraternity are to promote high

to educate and develop its members to be strong 
and healthy individuals. Each member learns skills 
and teaches them to others whenever possible. The 
club hopes to stimulate an interest in gymnastic 
activity among Kent State students. A list of safety 
rules and regulations are given to all members and 
standards of dress are carefully observed. A pre- 
scribed program is followed at each training session. 
Activities included in the program, for both men and 
women, are calisthenics, tumbling, parallel bars, 
rings and side horse. Club teachers have all been 
trained and many experts are brought in to demon- 
strate gymnastics. The club hosted the National 
AAU Gymnastic Championship for Women, wHich 
was also the Pan-American Team trials, last spring. 
Members take part in AAU Gymnastic meets in 
Cleveland and also in AAU Invitational meets. The

Teak Travelers 

The Teak Travelers is a group of students seeking 
to be recognized by Interfraternity council as Tau 
Beta Rho colony of Tau Kappa Epsilon. The group's 
final ambition is to become a chapter of TKE, the 
largest national social fraternity in the country. 
Requirements for membership closely parallel those 
of most of the Kent State fraternities, a 2.0 accumu- 
lative average and a 2.0 previous quarter grade. 
Newton Morton, associate professor of transporta- 
tion, is the advisor of the group. The regular business 
meetings are held weekly. The Travelers have plans 
to participate in numerous campus activities, such as 
intramurals, in the future. TKE members who have 
transferred to Kent State from chapters at other uni- 
versities began the organization of the local chapter 
in fall quarter. In January, delegates from KSU at- 
tended a national Founder's Day banquet for all 
chapters. At present, the Teak Travelers' plans call 
for increased emphasis on their efforts to become a 
recognized chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. 

Officers, l.-r., row 1: Jim Miller, Sec; William F.

Phi Epsilon Kappa 

The local chapter of Phi Epsilon Kappa, physical 
education honorary, was established in 1934. It is 
named Alpha Delta chapter. The honorary is open 
only to men majoring or minor ing in physical educa- 
tion. Requirements for membership are sophomore 
standing, a 2.5 accumulative point average and a 
high moral character. Phi Epsilon Kappa has five 
recognized objectives. One is to inculcate the prin- 
ciples of peace, friendship and brotherly love. Others 
are to promote and enhance the happiness of its mem- 
bers; to elevate the standards, ideals and ethics of 
those engaged in the field of health and physical 
education; to support the active chapters and to 
perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization and pro- 
vide for its government. The group, which has 20 
student members, gives aid to the physical education 
department clinics and other activities whenever pos-

Cardinal Key women work to serve University 







^ ▼ 





One of the greatest honors a w^oman at Kent State 
can receive is membership in Cardinal Key, the na- 
tional women's honor sorority. Applicants petition 
for membership and are chosen on the basis of their 
grades, activities and character. New members are 
pledged twice a year. Pledges find it hard to hide 
their big red keys. There is a pledge period of two 
weeks before activation. Service to the University 
is Cardinal Key's purpose. The women usher at 
special school functions, co-sponsor a mixer and 
Penny Carnival with Blue Key and serve as the 
Campus Day Queen's court. During Senior week the 
Cardinal Key Womanhood award is presented to 
the outstanding senior woman. Three tuition-free 
scholarships were presented to deserving women 
during the Semicentennial year. National conven- 
tions are held every two years, and the members who 
have graduated may join active alumnae groups. Lo- 
cally, business meetings are held twice each month. 
Advising the women in their many service projects is 
Dr. Dorcas A.nderson, associate professor of biology.

SEA works for better education of children 

Members of the Student Education association are 
interested in all phases of education from early 
childhood through elementary to secondary and the 
special types. Their main concern, however, is a 
better education for the children of tomorrow. By 
attending various professional conventions and 
workshops, the members of SEA learn about the his- 
tory, ethics and the current program of the teaching 
profession. One of the most important functions of 
the group is the high school day held each quarter. 
Prospective KSU students are guided around campus 
and their questions about college are answered. At 
Christmas time SEA members entertain the under- 
privileged children in the Kent area with a party. 
This group, one of the largest on campus, wants to 
develop among young people preparing to become 
teachers an organization which will become an in- 
tegral part of the state and national education asso- 
ciations. Dr. A. M. Crist is advisor.

ACE shows interest in elementary education 

The Association for Childhood Education at Kent 
State boasts more than 100 members. An interna- 
tional organization, it is open to any student major- 
ing in elementary education, special education or 
early childhood education. The group lists as its 
only requirement a sincere interest in the welfare 
of young children. Yearly programs include coffee 

hours, speakers, workshops and field trips to ob- 
serve and to meet children and their teachers. In 
conjunction with the Semicentennial program, the 
group heard a special guest speak on the growth of 
elementary education at the University during the 
last 50 years. The advisor for this organization is 
Prof. G. A. Craig.

Alpha Phi Omega 

Alpha Phi Omega and the word service are used 
synonymously on the KSU campus. This group of 
men, dedicated to service to the University, com- 
munity, and country, sponsors many projects. The 
annual Quartet contest, care of the Victory bell and 
an all-University mixer during fall quarter are 
three of the organization's services. Aiding local 
Boy Scout organizations, sending many Care pack- 
ages and sponsoring an all-University book exchange 
round out their program. There are more than 300 
chapters throughout the United States, and the Kent 
chapter often participates in activities with other 
Alpha Phi Omega chapters from colleges in our area. 
The only requirements for membership are that the 
applicant has had previous Boy Scout experience and 
has a sincere desire to serve. As a special service to 
KSU students, the members sponsored a "money 
tree" in the library last year, loaning small amounts 
of cash on the honor system. The motto of the fra- 
ternity is "leadership, friendship, service." The or- 
ganization has been established at Kent since 1941.

for this national honorary fraternity on the basis of 
scholarship, citizenship and service. A picnic for 
Kent's underprivileged children and an annual 
Christmas dinner at the home of Advisor Dr. E. M. 
Lewis are two of the year's highlights. 

Phi Epsilon holds as its goals the promotion of sister- 
hood and scholarship among its members and desires 
to be a service to the University. It is a social sor- 
ority organized two years ago which hopes to join 
Pan-Hellenic. The group helps to support a needy 
Kent family, presents Christmas baskets and enter- 
tains at the Old Folks' home.

The Kent State Pre-Engineering society was organ- 
ized to stimulate professional thinking among its 
members through social contacts, fellowship, and co- 
operation. The purpose of the group is to instill in 
the engineering student the same high conception of 
personal honor, integrity and obligation maintained 
by the professional engineer. 

Every man at Kent State is a member of AIM, and 
no dues are required. The purposes are to provide 
social, athletic, representative and governmental op- 
portunities for the independent. The members com- 
pete in the Quartet contest and Campus Day, hold 
social affairs and sell Semicentennial mementoes.

State students who are interested in pursuing the 
field of management in business. Meetings are held 
twice a month, and the members enjoy prominent 
speakers and field trips to area businesses and cor- 
porations. Members of this national professional 
group usually join senior chapters after graduation. 
The purposes of the group are to further the benefit 
achieved in the classrooms, to experience the prac- 
tical side of their profession, to learn from the prac- 
tices of prominent established businessmen, and to 
see businesses in actual operation. One of the new- 
est organizations on campus, the society was organ- 
ized in November, 1958, and has increased its mem- 
bership 100 per cent since then. It received its na- 
tional charter in February, 1959. This February the 
group honored the Semicentennial with a banquet 
for members, faculty, and leaders in the business 
world. The advisor is Dr. J. P. Schwitter.

ness field. Following national standards, prospective 
members must be business majors with 2.7 accumu- 
lative averages and 60 quarter hours of work com- 
pleted successfully. Pledging and activation are held 
twice each year. Supplementing their commercial 
courses, the women attend social and business meet- 
ings once a month. They often ask representatives 
from business firms such as the Bell Telephone com- 
pany to speak. The February meeting is the high 
point of the year as it commemorates the founding 
of the organization. At this meeting the Phi Gamma 
Nu Scholarship Key is awarded to the senior woman 
with the highest scholastic average. In addition, the 
national organization presents a scholarship cup to 
the chapter with the highest point average. Also at 
this meeting, a collection is taken to send to the 
national chapter in order to buy typewriters for 
veterans' hospitals. Kent State's chapter was estab- 
lished in 1951 and is advised by Prof. L. H. Wheeler 
of the secretarial science department. 


Chemical society 

The Student Affiliates of the American Chemical so- 
ciety was organized two years ago at Kent State 
when two groups of students interested in the var- 
ious phases of chemistry merged into one. The only 
requirement for membership is an interest in chem- 
istry. Meetings, held once a month, feature lectures 
given by professional specialists in the field, trips to 
Northeastern Ohio chemical plants and a picnic 
and Christmas party each year. In honor of the 
Semicentennial celebration, the members held a 
"meeting in miniature" in April, with delegates in- 
vited from all of the colleges in Ohio. This conven- 
tion followed the state convention held earlier in 
the week at Bowling Green State university. The 
local group is comprised of over 50 members. Its 
main purpose is to encourage a professional interest 
in the students for their particular field of speciali- 
zation. The society has been a member of the na- 
tional organization since 1950. Advising the group 
in their work, field trips and social gatherings is Dr. 
L. J. Todd of the chemistry department. 

In memoriani of Dr. Will S, Thompson who served the 
University for 15 years as head of the Chemistry de- 
partment. Doctor Thompson died Sept. 15, 1959, just

To become a member, students go through a Work- 
ing K pledge period and enter Golden K after they 
have earned the necessary points. The activities of 
the booster club are numerous. They arrange trans- 
portation for the cheerleaders to away games, pub- 
licize games and rallies and compete in the Campus 
Day parade. Among the traditions which Golden K 
hopes to make permanent on campus are a card sec- 
tion at football games, a women's precision drill 
team, the Flasherettes, and a victory flag to be flown 
after each win. The organization sold dinks with the 
Semicentennial seal to freshmen this year. One of 
the group's latest additions is the Golden K Govern- 
ing council. Students who have worked for three 
quarters, are very active and have a 2.5 average are

carols ends the evening. In the spring a brunch is 
held in honor of the graduating seniors. They are 
given sterling silver symbols in recognition of their 
membership in the group. For the first time this 
year, plaques to be engraved with the names of out- 
standing freshman and senior women were placed in

Sigma Delta Chi celebrates 50tli anniversary 

Sigma Delta Chi, international fraternity for men 
in the field of journalism, celebrated its fiftieth an- 
niversary this year. Two representatives from the 
University chapter attended a four-day convention 
in Indianapolis where Vice President Richard Nixon 
was the guest speaker. The goal set for this year is 
"freedom of information in government." The fra- 
ternity is the oldest, largest and most select profes- 
sional organization for men in its field. To become 
a member, the applicant must work on a campus or 
professional publication, maintain high standards of 
scholarship and desire a career in the field of jour- 
nalism. The purpose of the organization is to inspire 
interest in the journalistic field and to assist high 
schools in their publications whenever needed. Sigma 
Delta Chi sponsors and operates Rowboat Regatta 
in the spring and organizes the mock news event for 
the High School Press clinic. The men are also hosts 
for the annual publications banquet at which time 
awards are presented to outstanding students in 
journalism. When graduated, members can affiliate 
with alumni chapters of the fraternity. Speakers 
from the Buckeye chapter are frequent guests at 
dinners held throughout the year. "Quill" is the 
national magazine of the organization. The local 
chapter was established in 1952 and is advised by 
Prof. W. A. Fisher of the school of journalism.

a key member an associate must have a 2.1 accumu- 
lative average and a 3. the previous quarter. The 
purposes of the fraternity are to create and stimu- 
late interest in the field, to encourage professional 
growth, to foster a spirit of unity, to inspire high 
achievement and to aid in building good relations 
with other departments. Highlight of the year was 
the national convention in Cleveland. The Kent 
chapter members served on committees and spon- 
sored a display booth featuring our new Speech and 
Hearing center. The group enjoys many social ac- 
tivities throughout the year. A get-acquainted picnic 
is held fall quarter as are parties during the holidays. 
Prominent speakers are featured at the business 
meetings held twice a month. Advisor is William 
Weidner of the school of speech. Honorary members

Verder loses newest title 

For the first time since 1956, when it was ready 
for residents, Verder hall has had to give up the 
title of being the newest dormitory on campus. The 
hall was named for the first dean of women. Ver- 
der, located on Midway drive, houses approximately 
375 women. Each room has three occupants with 
the exception of a few singles. More activity is 
being centered around Verder this year because 
of the two new neighboring dorms which were 
opened this fall. Verder's lounge is decorated in 
shades of yellow and green. It has a recreation 
room and its own cafeteria which is also used for 
a winter formal and as a movie theater. The dorm 
holds parties at holidays, exchange dinners with 
other dorms and all-University mixers. The residents 
hear speakers sponsored by the Social Education 
committee. During Christmas they sing carols to 
all the dorms and sorority and fraternity houses. 
Verder participates in many University functions 
and events. They won first place for their Home- 
coming display of "The Big Game." Mrs. Esther 
Kern is the resident counselor. She is assisted by 
Miss Edith Herrington. 


Lounges on the second and third floors of Verder are good places to relax or 

study. Janet Hadley finds a comfortable spot on the table as 

l.-r., Georgia Hodgkiss and Linda Danford share a sofa 

Determined to interrupt their roommate's study, Donna 
Sheppard sneaks up behind Joyce Meitzke as Joyce 
Burrell threatens her with a pet dog.

a busy signal? Holding a three-way conversation are, 
l.-r,, Linda Brobst, Judy Dwyre and Barbara Henley.

Johnson houses 340 men 

Johnson hall, built in 1956, was first called Stopher 
B. It was renamed for Prof. John T. Johnson, a 
member of Kent State's original faculty. Coming 
here in 1912 he was director of science and photo- 
graphy and served as Dean of Faculty. The dorm 
houses about 340 students, both freshmen and up- 
perclassmen. It is not all work and no play at 
Johnson. There are semi-formals each quarter, a 
wiener roast in the spring and a banquet winter 
quarter. The men also have informal mixers and 
coke parties during the year. Dances every Tuesday 
and Thursday afternoon are a new activity added 
to the men's social calendar. Johnsonites are en- 
joying music with their meals this year as a result 
of the purchase of a new record player and radio. 
Speakers are mounted in the ceiling of the down- 
stairs lounge and also in the cafeteria. The dorm 
publication, "The Johnson Journal," supplies the 
men with news of campus events. Each year 
Johnson participates in Homecoming, Pork Barrel 
and Campus Day. This year Anita corridor won 
the dormitory football championship. Graduate 
counselors James Kent, Coiet Sims and Joseph 
Mallamo help handle the affairs of the dorm. 

Having a "Summit" meeting in Johnson's lounge the night 
before the exam are Hal Rogers, Tom Lazor, Doug Fox 
and Ray Burnett who's tired already. 

"What happened to my dime?" Hal Estis says when

Lowry is smallest dorm; friendliness prevails 

Room inspection time means clean-up time. Using a mop. 
broom and dust cloth to get the big job done in a hurry 
are, l.-r., Myra Wilson, Sandy Eier and Rita Hancock. 

Lowry hall on Hilltop drive is home away from 
home for 140 Kent coeds. Friendliness is the key 
word in the oldest and smallest dormitory on cam- 
pus. The atmosphere is relaxed and homey. Each 
year its residents choose to return there rather than 
live in one of the newer, more modern dormitories. 
Lowryites plan and participate in many activities 
throughout the year. Each freshman coming into 
the dorm has a big sister to help her the first 
hectic days of college. A get-acquainted tea is 
held in the fall for the big and little sisters. The an- 
nual dorm formal is the highlight of its social activi- 
ties. Lowry's size is no handicap when it comes to 
winning trophies. Last year its "Swing Into Spring" 
float won first place Campus Day. Lowry is the only 
women's dorm on campus which does not campus its 
women for lateness. Since fall quarter 1950 it has 
been on the honor system. Coeds are on their honor 
to sign in correctly. The dormitory also has a lounge 
where women commuters may relax. International 
students have their center in the old cafeteria where 
foreign flags and literature are displayed. 

Three's a crowd but five is worse especially when, l.-r., 
Beth Ann Weeks, Merrilyn Mitchell, Elaine Sopka, Judy 
Winters and Sarah Leech are trying to study.

Co-eds live in pipe alley 

One of Kent State's smallest dormitories, Moulton 
hall groaned under the strain of the record fall en- 
rollment. Nearly 100 extra women lived there for 
part of the quarter. Some of its more publicized resi- 
dents were those living in "pipe alley," a converted 
portion of the dormitory's basement. Although it 
does not have the facilities of the newer dorms, 
Moultonites refer to the aging building as "home." 
"A kindred spirit and friendliness are the qualities 
commonly found in Moulton," say its residents. The 
north end of the dorm was once the University's 
health center. This produced a unique situation since 
the rest of the hall was used for women's housing. 
Participating in all major University functions, the 
women of Moulton hall take their share of the 
awards. Latest additions to their collections were 
trophies for the first place in 1959 Pork Barrel 
and Rowboat Regatta and second place in Home- 
coming. Moulton's music room has a hospital at- 
mosphere when the Bloodmobile makes its quarterly 
visits. Resident counselor is Miss Hermione Shantz.

Terrace is newly painted 

Sporting a new coat of green paint, Terrace hall 
opened its doors to the onslaught of new freshmen 
and returning upperclassmen. All rooms and cor- 
ridors were redecorated in the pastel shade during 
the summer. Terrace is the largest dorm on campus, 
with space for 720 girls. Most of the rooms are triples, 
but there are also some single rooms. The dorm 
operated as two separate imits when it opened 
in 1954. They were united in 1956. Terrace boasts a 
large sunken lounge with two fireplaces, comfort- 
able chairs and a grand piano. The lounge is the 
spot where all house meetings and dorm parties are 
held. The hall also has two recreation rooms equip- 
ped with television sets, ping-pong tables and candy 
and soft drink machines. In order to handle the 
meals for residents, there are two cafeterias. Lines 
wound to great lengths this fall when girls from 
Prentice hall ate in the dining rooms until their 
cafeteria was opened in November. Engleman hall 
residents also use the dining facilities. The cafe- 
terias are also used for studying in the evening.

Dorm has social events 

Terrace added another trophy to its collection by 
capturing the volleyball prize this fall. They also 
won honorable mention for their Homecoming dis- 
play. Each year the girls hold a semi-formal, mixers, 
dress-up dinners and Halloween and Christmas 
parties. The lounges off the second and third floors 
are used for card parties and corridor meetings. This 
holiday season the girls in each room decorated their 
doors which were judged by resident counselors 
from other dorms. The girls also held a caroling 
party to serenade the sororities and fraternities. The 
Terrace hall choir sings at many functions through- 
out the year in addition to forming the nucleus for 
the songfest group. The Terrace House council 
meets every Monday night under the supervision of 
Miss Marjorie Roush, executive director. Other mem- 
bers of the largest staff of all the residences are 
Mrs. Harriet Barrett and Mrs. Zoe Brundage, res- 
ident counselors. Miss Audre Durbin is assistant 
resident counselor, and Miss Maria Campbell is 
serving the dorm as a graduate assistant.

Dunbar is modern dorm 

Dick Wirth and Steve Uhall test their strength in a 
game of Indian wrestling while Bill DeFranco 
waits to challenge the victor. 

Although originally built as a women's residence 
hall, Dunbar will be a men's dormitory until the 
fall of 1961. The new structure was converted be- 
cause of a lack of housing facilities for men. Dunbar 
is the scene for something new on campus this year. 
It is the first time a resident counselor with his 
wife has lived in a dormitory. Don Bushell and 
his wife occupy an apartment on the first floor. 
Although only open a few months, Dunbar has al- 
ready won its first award. Its Homecoming display, 
"Falcon Falls," won the second place prize in the 
independent men's division. Social events for the 
year include swim parties, open houses, a Dunbar- 
Prentice semi-formal held in December and a spring 
formal. Dunbar is the first residence on campus to 
incorporate a Political Activities committee designed 
to educate its residents on current campus affairs. 
It is also the first to establish a Spirits and Awards 
committee to create more school spirit in the resi- 
dence hall. Dunbar men dine in Prentice cafete- 
ria where a dress-up dinner is held every week. 
Dallas Bailey, Tom Shells and David Hunter are 
graduate counselors at the new dormitory. 

Prentice has co-ed dining 

Named after May Prentice, first woman faculty 
member, Prentice is the newest womens dormitory 
on campus. Residents first occupied the building this 
fall. It is one of the most modern dorms here, con- 
taining such features as built-in dressers and closets. 
Prentice's cafeteria, which also serves Dunbar, its 
''brother dorm," has many new conveniences. The 
kitchen may be closed off, and one of the two dining 
halls used for dances. Girls from Verder are also 
served here on weekends. The cafeterias were com- 
pleted in early November. The five corridors of Pren- 
tice are identified by male names. They include 
Zeke, Scott, Kevin, Ichabod and Cassanova. Pren- 
tice scored a first among women's dorms with its 
publication of a paper, "The Prentice Post," issued 
semi-monthly. Girls from Prentice have joined the 
men of Dunbar to form cheering sections at many 
football and basketball games. The swimming team 
presented the dorm with its first trophy by winning 
the intramural championship. Miss Beverly Belson 
is head resident counselor, and Miss Beryl Brown is 
the dorm's assistant counselor. 

A feature of Prentice rooms are built-in shelves

Stopher, the oldest men's dormitory on campus, was 
built in 1949. It is the first section of an intended 
quadrangle of men's dormitories which will be com- 
pleted in several years. Its cafeteria connects with 
Johnson hall, the second section of the proposed 
quadrangle. The men of Stopher have four lounges 
which offer facilities for studying, playing ping- 
pong, watching television or relaxing. They also 
have a terrace above the cafeteria where dances are 
held. Each year there are many social events for 
Stopherites. Included among them are a winter and 
a spring formal, a beatnik party and a barbecue for 
seniors. Following the tradition of past years, 
Stopher again held a Christmas party for the un- 
derprivileged children of the Kent-Ravenna area. 
Stopherites added a trophy to their collection this 
fall by winning first place in the independent 
men's division for Homecoming displays. The Sto- 
pher ice-breaker in the fall is especially planned 
for incoming freshmen. Richard Powers and 
Kenneth Saurman are counselors with Dennis Cooke, 
Dennis Spetz and Bruce Walsh assisting.

Hall connects to Union 

Heavily covered with ivy and shaped hke a big W, 
Engleman hall is the only structure on campus with 
a direct passage to the Union. Although once used 
as an upperclass dorm only, 238 girls from all classes 
now call Engleman their second home. The majority 
of Engleman girls live in single rooms, but the dorm 
also has many doubles, triples and quads. The dormi- 
tory has no cafeteria, and residents eat in Terrace 
hall. Engleman's comfortable lounge, with a tele- 
vision set, leather chairs and sofas and a fireplace, 
is found on the second floor of the building. Come 
spring, one of the most appreciated spots in Engle- 
man is the sun deck which overlooks lilac lane. 
Other features are a patio and pool which are be- 
hind the dorm. Active in all campus activities, 
Engleman's interpretation of "Which I Wuz" won 
first place in the independent women's division of 
songfest last spring. The residents also topped all 
other women's dorms in overall point average for 
last year. Mrs. Ruth Thompson is resident coun- 
selor. She is assisted by Miss Pat Vanden Avond.

University police patrol campus and dormitories 

Officially organized in 1950, the University police 
force has advanced from watchman status to that of 
a 19-man full-time unit. In their cruiser they cover 
more miles a year in protecting the University's 
360 acres than policemen do in a city the size of 
Kent. Their duties consist of maintaining patrol- 
men in the women's dorms; checking the buildings; 
handling bank details, especially at registration; in- 
vestigating campus accidents; taking students to the 
health center and giving tickets for illegal student 
parking. Depending upon the weather, they may 
give as few as five or as many as 75 tickets a day. 
Students are fined $1 the first time, $2 the second 
and $5 thereafter throughout the year. After the 
third violation each violator receives a notice, and 
his name is referred to the Dean's office. In one 
quarter some 500 notices were sent to students for 
parking on campus drives and in faculty parking 
lots during class hours. More than 3,000 cars are 
driven to Kent by students.

International teachers study education programs 

Under the auspices of the International Teachers 
Development program, Kent State University is a 
laboratory for groups of teachers coming to the 
United States to study various universities' educa- 
tion programs. Visiting teachers are housed on 
campus. They take part in seminars and have an 
opportunity to attend classes, although they are 
not enrolled as regular students. Their program 
also includes visits to schools in Northeastern Ohio, 
community trips and school visits and classroom 
observations. The main purpose of the program is 
for these educators to learn more about American 
education and to see it in action. Another objective 
is to promote and spread human understanding and 
appreciation of various people from many different 

lands. KSU is one of the 11 colleges and universi- 
ties asked this year to provide training for interna- 
tional teachers. In 1959, the first year KSU partici- 
pated in this program, the University was host to 
22 international teachers. Thirty-four teachers, all 
selected for their outstanding work as educators in 
their own lands, arrived this fall for three months of 
intensive training on and off campus. The countries 
which were represented at Kent are Mexico, Bar- 
bados, W.I., Honduras, Peru, Panama, Haiti, Bolivia, 
Columbia, Trinidad, Paraguay, Laos, Finland, 
Greece, Nigeria, Italy, Australia, Zanzibar and 
Norway. Dr. Frederick H. Kingdon, assistant pro- 
fessor of elementary education, is University coord- 
inator of the program.

Panhellenic council 

Panhellenic council is the governmental system 
under which the eight sororities on campus work 
together to set up their regulations and to accom- 
plish joint projects. They also decide penalties for 
violations of the regulations. There are three dele- 
gates from each sorority including the preisdent, 
eight rush counselors and four officers. A rotating 
of officers' chairs among the sororities each year 
assures equal representation. The rush counseling 
is a new addition to the Panhell. It was set up this 
past year with a counselor in each dorm to advise 
rushees and pledges and to answer particular 
questions that might be asked about sorority life. 
In addition, "It's All Greek To Me," is a pamphlet 
published to introduce the various sororities and 
Greek life in general to rushees. "Bermuda" parties 
and open houses during the fall give the freshman 
women a taste of sorority rush. The group strives to 
encourage a high standard of personal as well as 
academic development for all sorority members. An 
Induction banquet is held in the spring for officers, 
and a Scholarship tea is sponsored for outstanding 
scholastic sorority members. The past year Panhel- 
lenic council raised money to help a Student Council 
project. Miss Sara Berenson, associate dean of wom- 
en, is advisor to the council. 

Inter-fraternity council 

Inter-fraternity council is the governmental body 
which coordinates the activities of fraternities at 
Kent State University. All eighteen fraternities 
are members of this organization. One member 
and the president from each fraternity are seated 
on the council. It is the judicial body representing 
approximately 800 fraternity men to the University 
and to the public. IFC has set up a standard policy 
which governs such functions as formal and informal 
rushing; it also publishes a booklet which deals with 
formal rushing during winter quarter. The group 
holds a quarterly advisors' banquet, and at the spring 
dinner a trophy is awarded to the outstanding frater- 
nity advisor. Inter-fraternity council also awards 
trophies to winners of each of the nine intramural 
sports. The fraternities compete against one an- 
other in this program. In cooperation with Pan 
Hellenic council IFC sponsors Greek Week. The 
local group is a member of the National Interfrater-

Alpha Chi Omega 

Although Alpha Chi Omega is celebrating its 10th 
anniversary at Kent State university this year, it is 
still the youngest sorority on campus. The chapter 
moved into a new house last year. The national 
philanthropy project is helping the cerebral palsied. 
At least one day each year is set aside by the local 
Gamma Lambda chapter to work on projects which 
will benefit these people. In addition the Alpha 
Chi's work with the speech and hearing clinic. Once 
each year the sorority members and their dates re- 
vert to their childhood. Dress typical of five and six- 
year-olds is appropriate for the "Lollipop hop." The 
A Chi O's also hold a winter formal. Their version 
of "Wild Strawberries" earned them third place in 
the 1960 Pork Barrel. They placed third in Campus 
Day Songfest competition with "It's A Grand Night 
for Singing." All this activity has not hurt the soror- 
ity's scholastic achievements. It has received several 
national awards for high scholastic attainment. The 
colors of A Chi O are olive green and scarlet. It 
was organized in 1885 at DePauw university.

Alpha Gamma Delta 

The Alpha Gams' participation in activities paid off 
this past year. They were winners of the May Day re- 
lays, and their Homecoming Day house decorations 
won the trophy for first place. In the sorority intra- 
mural sports competition the Alpha Gam team took 
home another first place trophy by beating all the 
other entrants in the swimming meet. Their national 
philanthropy project is working with and for ce- 
rebral palsied children. Locally the group has 
extended its activities to include a Christmas party 
for the mentally retarded children of the area. Alpha 
Gamma Delta is one of Kent State's three sororities 
founded at Syracuse university. It began in 1904 and 
is the youngest national on campus. Beginning as Pi 
Kappa Sigma, a local sorority, in 1926, the Alpha Nu 
chapter was installed here in 1947. Ribbons of red, 
buff and green distinguish Alpha Gamma Delta 
pledges. Each year they sponsor the All-University 
Pledge tea. The sorority's social functions are a 
winter date dance, a spring dinner dance and the 
Feast of Roses after activation of pledges. 

Trying to set a new record for crowding telephone 
booths are Marian Bonsor, Miriam Bonsor, Ellen 
Zuelsdorf, Carol Pay, Carol Morton, Linda Elmore. 


Alpha Phi 

Alpha Phi, founded in 1872 at Syracuse university, 
is the oldest national sorority on campus. The local 
chapter, Beta Omega, was installed in 1948. The 
Pork Barrel trophy for second place in the sorority 
division went to the Phis for their "Moment of 
Decision." They also placed second in Homecom- 
ing house decorations. Two more trophies for pledges 
to polish were added by the organization's placing 
first in both volleyball and basketball in sorority 
intramural sports competition. "Little hearts need 
big hearts" reminds all Phis of their national phil- 
anthropy, helping children who have heart diseases. 
Underprivileged children in Kent are treated to a 
Christmas party by Alpha Phi and Sigma Nu, its 
brother fraternity. The sorority's pledges wear rib- 
bons of silver and bordeaux over their silver ivy 
leaf pledge pins. Each winter the Phis present their 
pledges to the Greek world at their annual All 
Greek formal held during winter quarter. The 
pledges are serenaded by their sisters and the broth- 
ers of Sigma Nu. Each is given flowers.

Alpha Xi Delta 

Underprivileged children reap the benefits from the 
Alpha Xi Delta's philanthropy program. At Christ- 
mastime children from Kent welfare agencies are 
entertained and given presents at a party. The 
Alpha Xi's also contribute to an international schol- 
arship fund for five Dutch students. This year the 
sorority remodeled its house's upstairs hall into a 
lounge. Another trophy was added to the collection 
on their mantle when their "Song of the South" 
placed first at Pork Barrel. The Xi's also welcomed 
a new housemother. Founded at Lombard college, 
Galesburg, 111., in 1893, the local Beta Tau chapter 
was installed in 1947. Their Sunday night spaghetti 
suppers have become a near tradition on campus. 
Instead of the usual "Pumkin Prom," the Alpha 
Xi's held a "Heaven or Hell" party with Delta 
Upsilon, their brother fraternity on campus. The 
pledges of Alpha Xi Delta wear ribbons of double 
blue and gold over an oblong pin. The winter 
pledges are presented at the Pink Rose formal spring 
quarter. A gold diggers dance is given by the pledges. 

The financial accounts of the sorority are studied by,

Chi Omega 

Having outgrown their present home, the Chi 
Omegas are building a new house in the near future. 
Last spring the Chi O's purchased a successor to 
Percy I, a flashing red Buick ambulance appropri- 
ately dubbed Percy II. She is named for the Greek 
goddess, Persephone. On Honors day the sorority 
presents a $25 award to the outstanding senior wom- 
an in the field of sociology. All faculty members 
and students are invited to the Chi Omega spon- 
sored annual All-University tea. The chapter visits 
a home for the aged at Thanksgiving and Christ- 
mas. At the latter time Kappa Sigma joins them 
in singing carols. Chi O alumna host the active 
chapter at the Eleusinian banquet. In the spring 
the women entertain their pinmates and dates at 
a buffet dinner dance. The Lambda Delta chapter 
of Chi Omega was the first national sorority on 
Kent State's campus. It was installed June 7, 1947. 
The national was founded in 1875 at the Uni- 
versity of Arkansas. Cardinal and straw are the 
colors of Chi Omega. The owl is one of its symbols.

Delta Gamma 

A large amount of talent and brains paid off for 
the DG's last year. After many days of practice 
they won first place in Songfest on Campus Day. 
The core of their success might lie in their two 
quartets which brought home a first and a third 
place trophy from the annual spring quartet contest 
sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega. All this activity 
didn't seem to harm their classwork; they were 
awarded the scholarship trophy for having the high- 
est point average among sororities. Although the 
Delta Gammas are active on campus they take time 
out every day to work on their philanthropy project 
which is sight conservation and aid to the blind. 
The Gamma Epsilon chapter established at Kent 
State in 1947, has been reading to a blind stu- 
dent for the last four years. Since he is graduat- 
ing this year they have begun working with a blind 
family. On the social side, one of the biggest events 
of the year is their winter formal when the Anchor 
Man is selected. This honor is given to the man who 
has done the most for the sorority in the past year.

Delta Zeta 

The aroma of popcorn drifts through the room as

Nationally Delta Zeta supports three philanthro- 
pies: Gallaudet college for the deaf, hearing aids 
and Carville Leper colony. The local chapter buys 
hearing aids for the needy. In conjunction with 
this philanthropy, the DZ's are completely furnish- 
ing a classroom in the new speech and hearing 
center. This Delta Zeta room, a Semicentennial gift 
to the University, is equipped with the most modern 
devices for the care of the deaf. Each year the 
sorority recognizes an outstanding faculty member 
with a tea in his honor. This year the Kent State 
and the Baldwin- Wallace DZ's initiated a Christmas 
formal which will become an annual function of 
the chapters. The spring formal is the climax of 
Delta Zetas' social activity. A medley from "South 
Pacific" won them the second place trophy in Cam- 
pus Day Songfest. They copped second place in 
Greek Week Olympics. National headquarters has 
cited the Kent chapter for its campus activities 
and standards program. Organized at Kent in 1948 
the colors of Delta Zeta are old rose and vieux green.

Gamma Phi Beta 

Wearers of the crescent at Kent State excel in 
sports. The Gamma Phi Betas won the Greek leap 
at the Olympic day games Greek Week. In intramu- 
ral competition among sororities the organization 
won trophies in softball and in bowling. As a climax 
Gamma Phi Beta was awarded the WRA All-Sports 
trophy for earning the most points in the sorority 
intramural program. Again the Gamma Phis' Hawai- 
ian leis brought them first place at Penny Carni- 
val. The sorority collects and repairs toys for the 
Welfare agency. It also makes up a Christmas 
basket for an underprivileged Kent family. Nation- 
ally the sorority aids summer camps for under- 
privileged children in Colorado and Canada. An 
Easter egg hunt is staged for the alums' children 
by the pledges. Gamma Phi Beta was founded at 
Syracuse university in 1874 and installed here in 
1947. Its colors are mode and brown. The top social 
event of the year is the Sweetheart dance. Gamma 
Phis also have a winter formal. May Day relays are 
annually co-sponsored with Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Alpha Epsilon Pi 

High scholarship is one of the characteristics of 
Alpha Epsilon Pi. This is shown by its w^inning the 
Inter-fraternity council trophy for the highest schol- 
astic average for the 1958-1959 school year. In 
addition to this award, AEPi also received a Scholar- 
ship trophy from its national headquarters. Founded 
at New York university in 1913, Alpha Epsilon Pi 
was the first national social fraternity to begin at 
that university. One of the first national fraterni- 
ties at Kent State, the Phi Deuteron chapter was 
formed from a local group in 1949. The lion is the 
fraternity's symbol. It is not all work and no play 
with the AEPi's. They enjoy the lighter side of 
campus life also. Each year they hold a Wild West 
and a Gay Paree party. The annual winter formal is 
the climax of their social season. At Penny Carnival 
the group won over all the other fraternities. Their 
goldfish in plastic bags were almost as numerous as 
students on campus. This year Alpha Epsilon Pi 
made t heir first annual Scholarship award. The 
winner received a quarter's tuition.

Alpha Tau Omega 

The ATO's hold the honor of being the first Greek 
letter fraternity organized after the Civil War. In 
1865, three Confederate veterans organized the first 
chapter in Richmond, Va., in order to bring the 
North and South together in a fraternal brother- 
hood. The local chapter, Ohio Zeta Zeta, made its 
appearance on campus in 1953. Since it was started 
at Indiana in 1950, Help Week has been an outstand- 
ing feature of ATO activities. The Alpha Taus have 
made their presence known on the athletic scene. 
They captured the All-Sports trophy in Inter-frater- 
nity competition and won the tug of war at Rowboat 
Regatta. With three dances during the year, the 
brothers enjoy an active social calendar. A Christ- 
mas dance is held fall quarter; in the spring there is 
a formal dinner-dance. Highlighting the ATO's year 
is the White Tea Rose ball winter quarter. The 
sweetheart of ATO for the coming year reigns as 
queen at the ball. She is selected from eight repre- 
sentatives of the new winter quarter sorority pledge 
classes by a vote of the fraternity members.

Kent's only independent fraternity, the Collegiates, 
was organized by seven men in November, 1954. The 
group tries to promote University tradition and 
fellowship, cultural and social life among its mem- 
bers. The role of the individual is stressed in group 
living. Although only a young organization, it has 
collected quite a few trophies. The Collegiates are 
active in intramural competition. They won second- 
place trophy in Inter-fraternity football and placed 
first in bowling last year. Their quartet won 
the Alpha Phi Omega quartet singing contest for 
three consecutive years. A unique feature of the 
Collegiates is that they have no pledge period; in- 
stead, a three week period of orientation is substi- 
tuted. Many small informal parties are held by the 
Collegiates, but the highpoint of their social activi- 
ties is the annual spring formal. In November a 
Founders' Day banquet is held. Once a year Collegi- 
ates and their dates trade traditional dress for garb 
ranging from Roman togas to space uniforms. These 
oddly dressed people go to the Masquerade party. 

Getting ready for an evening of fine sounds are, 

l.-r.. Chuck Petersen, Jay Williams and Ron 

Smith. The hi-fi seldom rests at the Collegiates.

Delta Sigma Pi 

Delta Sigma Pi is unique among fraternities because 
it is both a social and a professional fraternity. With 
a desire to foster the study of business in universities 
and to reap the benefits of social fraternity life, it 
was founded on the campus of New York university 
in 1907. The local chapter, formerly Delta Kappa 
Psi, a local fraternity, Beta Pi, was installed in 
1942. The KSU chapter schedules field trips to mer- 
cantile and industrial establishments and invites 
speakers from the business world to further profes- 
sional aspects of the fraternity. On its social calen- 
dar Beta Pi includes a fall quarter semi-formal, the 
Monte Carlo party and the spring formal at which 
the Rose of Delta Sig is elected by the brothers. Each 
year a Gold Scholarship key is awarded by Delta 
Sigma Pi to the male graduating senior who has the 
highest academic record in the entire course of com- 
merce and business administration subjects. Last 
year Beta Pi received the national's Efficiency Con- 
test award. Dr. Stanley Corey, professor of eco- 
nomics, is the Kent state chapter advisor.

Delta Tau Delta 

Having spent 25 years as a local and 10 years as 
a national fraternity Delta Tau Delta has established 
itself firmly on the KSU campus. Men with wide 
and varying backgrounds have given the chapter its 
reputation for a close brotherhood. Delts are active 
in several campus activities. Wearers of the golden 
square hold important positions in student govern- 
ment, campus publications, Blue Key, University 
Theatre and varsity athletics. The Delt solidarity 
has paid off when it has come to such projects as 
Homecoming, Campus Day, Greek Week and Song- 
fest. The trophy case at the house on Main street 
holds the awards the Delts have recently won in 
these events. But University functions are not the 
only place that the Delts have emerged victorious. 
Social life is very important around the fraternity 
house, and the social calendar is well supplied with a 
variety of parties including one with a shipwreck 
theme, serenades, formals, dinner dances, hayrides, 
stags and other functions designed to give a broad 
aspect to the fraternity's social side. 

By staying in, Bob Doane gets some welcome advice 

from brothers, standing, Frank Ambrozic and 

Tom Clutterbuck on a drawing problem.

Delta Upsilon 

The national office of Delta Upsilon awarded the 
local chapter one of the fraternity's highest honors, 
the President's Trophy for Excellence. It is given 
to the outstanding chapter in each of the four divi- 
sions for making citations. Locally, the DU's won 
Songfest and placed first in Pork Barrel, in addition 
to gaining several intramural awards. A unique 
feature of Delta Upsilon is that secrets, generally 
associated with fraternities, are absent from its 
structure. For its social functions Delta Upsilon 
holds formal dances in the winter and spring quar- 
ters and the "Pumkin Prom" with their sister soror- 
ity, Alpha Xi Delta. As a part of their responsibility 
to the community, the brothers take an interest in 
fund raising activities. Founded in 1834 at Williams 
college. Delta Upsilon is the nation's sixth oldest 
social fraternity. The local chapter came under the 
national structure in 1948 when Kent's first Greek- 
letter fraternity. Kappa Mu Kappa, became Delta 
Upsilon. It was Kent State University's first na- 
tionally affiliated fraternity.

Kappa Sigma 

Ted Rogers, Mike Hicky and Tony Sapienza have 
done their part in putting Epsilon Rho chapter on 
the Kappa Sigma national map. The one-hundred- 
dollar Senior Scholastic scholarship went to Ted 
Rogers, while Mike Hicky was given the fifty-dollar 
Junior Scholastic award. Tony Sapienza won second 
place in the Kappa Sigma National Song Writing 
contest. On the local scene Kappa Sigma won the 
annual Soap Box Derby held on the morning of 
Rowboat Regatta. As a community service, Epsilon 
Rho participates in the singing of Christmas carols 
at the county's Old People's home. Each pledge 
class is required to construct a project which could 
be used at the chapter house. On the social side 
Kappa Sigma sponsors several parties, dances and 
banquets during the year. The highlights of its social 
calendar are a spring and a winter formal and a 
Sweetheart formal. As a national fraternity, Kappa 
Sigma was founded at the University of Virginia in 
1869. The Kent State University chapter, form.erly 
Kappa Sigma Chi, was installed in 1950.

Phi Delta Theta 

Duty to the individual, the group and the community 
might well be the motto of Phi Delta Theta frater- 
nity. The varied activities of this group make valid 
their claim of a brotherhood. Men in the chapter 
have recently won such awards as the Bowman 
award and the MSA award. Working as a group the 
Phi Delts took third place in the 1959 Campus Day 
Songfest. A community service project which the 
Phi Delts sponsor each spring is a field trip for 
the deaf children of this area. The Phi Delta Theta 
national office awarded the local chapter a certi- 
ficate of outstanding achievement in community 
service. Social life gets its share of attention too. 
The Phi Delts co-sponsor the Ohio Lambda ball with 
the Sig Eps and the SAE's. Other annual social 
functions are She Delt week, the winter formal and 
the spring C and T dance. The pledges sponsor the 
"Little All Greek" for other pledge classes. Mem- 
bers of Phi Delta Theta can be found in every form 
of campus activity from Blue Key, national men's 
honorary, to editor of the Daily Kent Stater. 

Three heads are better than one in finding a good 

number. Giving moral support to Bill Wardle 

are George Limbaugh and John Van Oosten. 


Suspicious glances are cast by James McAllister, Roy Fischer and Alek Vara 
on smug-looking Paul Gilbert. They wonder what new duty 
he's got planned for the pledges.

Phi Kappa Tau 

Walking down Main street any day of the week, one 
of the songs likely to be heard is "Fight on, you Phi 
Tau warriors!" The men of Phi Kappa Tau, Beta 
Mu chapter, pride themselves on the closeness of 
their undivided brotherhood. Men of Phi Tau can 
be found in virtually every phase of campus activity. 
The bearers of the Phi Kappa Tau pin have repre- 
sented their chapter on Student Council and as top 
officers in Inter-fraternity council, Newman club, 
Stopher Hall House council and on the staff of the 
Daily Kent Stater. Working as a group they have 
won trophies for their combined efforts on Home- 
coming, Campus Day, Rowboat Regatta and Greek 
Week. The chapter has also received awards from 
its national office for scholastic success. Besides 
scholarship the men of Phi Kappa Tau have a well 
rounded social life. The Kent chapter has an an- 
nual Softball game and picnic with the University 
of Akron Phi Tau's. The highlight of the year is the 
Spring Sweetheart formal; at this dance the chap- 
ter presents its Sweetheart.

Phi Kappa Theta 

Phi Kappa Theta was formed in 1958 when Theta 
Kappa Phi and Phi Kappa, fraternities for Catholic 
men, merged. Previously the Kent chapter, organ- 
ized in 1949, was known as the Phi chapter of Theta 
Kappa Phi. It received two awards from national 
headquarters last year. They were the national 
Chapter Improvement award and the Sun trophy 
for the best chapter publication. With three major 
dances the Phi Kap social calendar is well filled. 
Each fall a Sweater hop is held, with a Sweater 
queen selected to reign over it. At the Gold Cup 
formal winter quarter each of the brothers' dates 
receives a symbol of her beauty. In the springtime 
at the Sweetheart formal the Sweetheart of Phi 
Kappa Theta for the coming year is chosen. The 
fraternity has something of which no other frater- 
nity can boast — its own private lake. As a result, 
members often hold swimming and picnicking part- 
ies. The men of Phi Kappa Theta have close ties 
with Newman club. Catholic student organization. 
Each group helps the other to their mutual benefit.

Phi Sigma Kappa 

With its cardinal principles of brotherhood, scholar- 
ship and character, Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity 
guides its functions on the campus. To promote one 
of its principles, brotherhood, the chapter sponsors 
several social functions for its members. These are 
highlighted by Founder's Day festivities, the Snow- 
ball formal and the spring formal. The second 
cardinal principle, scholarship, is advanced in the 
chapter by staying near the top scholastically on 
campus. During fall quarter. Phi Sigma Kappa 
ranked highest among Kent's fraternities. By com- 
bining the first two rules, the brothers develop 
character, their third cardinal principle. Phi Sigma 
Kappa was formed on the University of Massachu- 
setts campus May 15, 1873. Kent's local chapter Beta 
Tetarton, became a part of the national organization 
on May 10, 1950. Since the chapter completes ten 
years of existence at Kent State this year, the Phi 
Sig's national magazine will feature the University 
during the Semicentennial celebration as well as the 
Beta Tetarton chapter.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

In the belief that a variety of talent and ability 
enriches the individual personality of each member, 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon strives to maintain a vi'ell- 
rounded chapter. Sigma Alpha Epsilon got its start 
at the University of Alabama in 1856 and came to 
Kent State in 1953. Locally, Ohio Lambda chapter 
placed second in Homecoming house decorations and 
Campus Day's Songfest. As for the social activities 
of SAE, the chapter sponsors the Ohio Lambda Ball 
with the Phi Delts and the Sig Eps. Other social 
events on the SAE calendar are the spring "Her 
Loveliness" formal, the winter Minerva club dance 
and the fall Anniversary Ball. During the football 
season, Ohio Lambda chapter presented trophies to 
the outstanding lineman and the outstanding back 
of each game. The men sponsor the gladiator games 
at Rowboat Regatta. An almost endless task for 
pledges of SAE is repainting the fraternity's sym- 
bols, the concrete lions guarding the sidewalk, after 
the many campus "artists" have decorated them with 
everything including tar-and-feathers.

Sigma Nu 

Some of the proverbial midnight oil is expended on 
work that has Richard Schwarz and 
Gene Tiberio momentarily puzzled. 

Have you ever had the door to the Administration 
building politely opened for you by a gentleman 
wearing a black baseball cap? Students, members 
of the faculty and guests receive this special treat- 
ment about three weeks out of the year when the 
pledges of Sigma Nu are going through Help Week. 
On the social side, Zeta Gamma chapter co-sponsors 
the All-Greek formal with the Alpha Phi's, its 
sister sorority. The fraternity also holds the White 
Rose formal in the spring and the Anniversary dance 
to commemorate the chapter's affiliation with the 
national organization. Each group of pledges holds a 
"Scummers hop" for the actives. Sigma Nu was 
founded at Virginia Military institute in 1869, and 
the local chapter was established on the campus in 
1949 as the second national fraternity. Richard 
Schwarz won the fraternity's $200 Foundation schol- 
arship. For local honors, Sigma Nu won the All-Uni- 
versity intramural wrestling championship in the 
fall. The brothers hold an annual Christmas party 
for underprivileged children.

Sigma Phi Epsilon 

Just ask anyone on campus who lives behind the 
"Red Door," and he will say the brothers of Sigma 
Phi Epsilon. Last year the Sig Ep quartet was first 
in the Alpha Phi Omega singing quartet contest. 
First place in the gladiator races at Rowboat Re- 
gatta went to the fraternity. Then they won a first, 
a second and a third place in Greek Week activities. 
Founded in 1901 at Richmond university in Virginia, 
Sigma Phi Epsilon is the nation's second largest 
fraternity. The Ohio Lambda chapter at Kent was 
organized in 1953. It was formerly known as Chi 
Alpha fraternity. The Sig Eps received three awards 
from their national headquarters this year: the five- 
year Lamp fund award; the Ulysses S. Dubach award 
and the Clifford B. Schott key. Each year the broth- 
ers hold two formal dances. Dads' old raccoon coats 
are taken out of mothballs for the Roaring Twen- 
ties party while tuxedos are the dress at the Play- 
boy party. As part of their duties pledges carry 
books for sorority girls and purple and red bricks. 
The Sig Eps' co-sponsor May Day Relays.

Theta Chi 

"You mean that I've been using the wrong book all 
quarter?" asks Bob Denison, center, of Ray 
Laughlin and Bill Cash. 

"Alma Mater First and Theta Chi for Alma Mater." 
The brothers of Theta Chi strive to uphold this 
motto during their University and graduate life. 
More than 100 years ago a group of young students 
from Norwich university in Norwich, Vt., formed 
the first chapter of Theta Chi fraternity. The Delta 
Tau chapter was founded on our campus in 1953. The 
brothers place a high value on working together. 
This is shown by a first place prize in the '59 Pork 
Barrel and a second place prize in the same event 
this year. Once a year around Halloween time the 
brothers of Theta Chi return to their childhood and 
create all sorts of monster costumes in preparation 
for their well-known monster party. The members 
entertain their dates and pinmates at the annual 
winter and spring formal dinners and dances. The 
big social event of the year is the regional Corral for 
the chapters in this area. Last year the dance was 
held in Allegheny, Pa. The dream girl of Theta Chi 
selected at this dance last year was Joyce Bican from 
Kent State University.

Alpha Phi Alpha 

One of Kent's newer fraternities, Alpha Phi Alpha 
has in its short time on campus seen its members 
participate in YMCA, IFC, Blue Key, Student Coun- 
cil and UCF. The development of leaders and the 
cultivation of high ideals are the aims of the chapter 
and its individual members. 1960 will mark the 55th 
year of the founding of Alpha Phi Alpha at Cornell 
university. Originally known as the Sphinx club, 
the KSU chapter has come a long way since its early 
days. Sphinx club's efforts for national recognition 
were rewarded on January 24, 1957, when they re- 
ceived the charter designating them Epsilon Delta 
chapter. Besides emphasizing scholarship, the men 
of Alpha Phi Alpha also participate in University in- 
tramurals. Members of the chapter are on the dif- 
ferent varsity athletic teams. Outstanding players 
on the football, basketball and wrestling teams can 
be found on the rolls of Epsilon Delta. But the motto 
of the chapter will always remain, "First of all, 
servants of all, we shall transcend all." Dr. O. W. 
Ritchie of the sociology department is the advisor.

Kappa Alpha Psi 

Although a young group, the men of Kappa Alpha 
Psi have taken their place among Kent's fraternities. 
Since their founding on March 15, 1949, the brothers 
of Gamma Tau chapter have developed a close and 
spirited brotherhood. The enthusiasm of this group 
is best exemplified by their participation in many 
campus activities. Representative of the varied 
University functions in which the diversity of the 
brothers has been put to good use are Penny Carn- 
ival, Campus Day and an annual guide right pro- 
gram. Belief that one of the jobs of a fraternity is 
the support of local philanthropies and community 
services, Kappa Alpha Psi has worked closely with 
the Community Chest. A distinguished record in 
University intramurals is ample proof that team- 
work has paid off for the brothers. But KSU intra- 
murals is not the only field for the more athletically 
inclined. Several members of the varsity football, 
baseball, cross country and track teams are among 
members of Kappa Alpha Psi. Prof. Walter Stewart, 
political science instructor, is the advisor.

Delta Colony 

The Delta colony is the advance group of Phi Gamma 
Delta. This spring the colony members plan to be- 
come Fiji's and Kent's newest fraternity. The Phi 
Gams moved into a new house this year. The chap- 
ter has already made its mark in University competi- 
tion. It won the tug-of-war and hop-skip and jump 
events on Olympic Day during Greek Week and 
captured third place in Homecoming house decora- 
tions. Founded at Washington and Jefferson college 
in 1848, a unique feature of Phi Gamma Delta is that 
it has more graduate than undergraduate chapters. 
As the older fraternities, the organization has an 
active social life. During winter quarter members 
treat their dates to a formal dinner-dance. A tradi- 
tion of the Phi Gams is the Fiji island party. Bare 
feet, sarongs, eating with fingers and other native 
customs replace the usual, civilized Kent Stater's 
habits. Greasepaint transforms the pale Northerners 
to the tawny shades of the South Sea islanders. The 
party is usually held in an area barn. A tropical 
scene completed with sand and palm trees is created.

Flashes upset Miami 

No one could have picked a more perfect stage for 
an upset. Before 23 visiting high school bands, hon- 
ored Dads and guest legislators, the Golden Flashes 
handed Miami university their first Mid-American 
conference loss since 1952, 14-6. Desire and sheer 
determination were key factors in ending the Red- 
skin winning streak over Kent at six games. A host 
of Kent linemen, led by senior end Fred Rothfuss, 
blocked a first quarter Miami punt, and quarterback 
Dick Mostardo grabbed the ball and raced 50 yards 
for the game's first score. Dave Washington scored 
from a spread formation to give the Flashes an 8-0 
lead. Rothfuss blocked another punt in the second 
quarter which was recovered by guard Tom Darrah 
on the Miami 47-yard line, but Kent was unable to 
capitalize on the break. In the third quarter, Kent 
guard Dick Barber recovered a fumble on the Miami 
32. Five plays later, Mostardo capped runs by John 
Henry Martin and Chuck Naso with a 20-yard scor- 
ing run. Washington's conversion attempt was stop- 
ped short, and the Flashes had to settle for a 14-0 
lead. The Redskins fought back as they scored on 
a 66-yard drive after recovering a Kent fumble. 
The final whistle sounded an end to the Miami jinx. 

Proud dad yelps as the final gun sends 
players and coaches into a frenzy after the 
14-6 upset victory over the Miami Redskins. 


It ended here and there's no fighting it because Harvey 
Hunt has a good hold and Rees is bound to get wet. 

"To the showers" is the cry as, l.-r., Terry McCorry, Bob 
Gusbar and Jeep Smith help carry Rees up the stairs. 

Rees slips out of the shower unnoticed as players 
roughhouse with a new victim. 

It started here as Coach Trevor Rees is lifted to the shoulders of jubilant 
Kent players for the triumphant ride to the locker room. 


On -again off -again Flashes post 5-3 season 

A record opening night crowd of 7500 attended the 
first showing of the 1959 Golden Flashes as they 
went against the Yellow Jackets of Baldwin-Wal- 
lace college under the lights of Memorial stadium. 
Weakened by losses in the Flashes' forward wall, 
Kent called upon All-MAC quarterback Dick Mos- 
tardo to match throwing arms with B-W's Chuck 
Brady. Brady threw for both Yellow Jacket scores, 
but he was no match for Kent as halfback John 
Henry Martin scored twice to lead the 46-12 rout. 
The impressive B-W win gave little indication of 
the 5-3 seesaw season which was in store for the 

Flashes. The following week Kent went into the 
Ohio university game as six-point favorites, but 
came out on the short end, 46-0. Beginning and end- 
ing the game on Oil's one-yard line, Kent was unable 
to score as the Bobcats capitalized on pass intercep- 
tions to deal the worst defeat suffered by a Rees 
coached team since 1942. A burst of spirit sent the 
Golden Flashes over Miami, defending MAC cham- 
pions, 14-6, followed by a not-too-impressive 46-7 
victory over a conference cellar-dwelling Marshall 
team. With two straight wins, the Flashes prepared 
to meet Bowling Green. 

Taking a break during the Baldwin- Wallace game are John Martin, 33; Dick 
Mostardo, 22; Tom Darrah, 52; Robert Hall, 76 and Joe Chapon, 63.

57 yards to the three. He gained 198 yards in 12 

carries and scored again on a 63 yard run. 

Kent quarterback Dicli Mostardo calls signals 
against B-W. Mostardo also performed well on 
defense throughout the season and signed 
with the Cleveland Browns as a defensive back. 

Golden Flashes Bob Gusbar, 80, and Chuck Naso, 30, 
team up to make the stop on a Louisville

BG ends MAC hopes 

In the twenty-eighth renewal of one of Ohio's oldest 
football rivalries, a lot of scores were to be settled 
between Kent State and the Falcons of Bowling 
Green. The Flashes were after their eighth straight 
home victory. Kent's last home defeat was dealt by 
the Falcons on Homecoming Day in 1957. Kent was 
able to finish second in the MAC last year at the 
expense of BG when they spoiled the Falcons' Home- 
coming with an 8-7 upset. The Falcons came to Kent 
with an undefeated team in a tie with OU for the 
MAC crown. Four pass interceptions and poor kick- 
ing defense were key factors which lead to Kent's 
defeat, 25-8. A blocked punt nearly lead to a BG 
touchdown in the first quarter, but the Flashes held 
for four downs on the three-yard line. After a Falcon 
field goal, the Reesmen again turned back a Bowling 
Green drive at the one-yard line. Three plays later, 
John Henry Martin, punting inside the ten, had the 
ball slide off the side of his foot. The Falcons re- 
covered on the one and scored two plays later. John 
Shuster tallied for Kent as they trailed 11-8 at half- 
time. In the second half. Bowling Green rolled over 
Kent with hard tackling and determined charging. 

During a brighter part 

of the Homecoming game against 

Bowling Green, John Shuster, 26, crosses the 

goal line for Kent's only touchdown of the afternoon.

End Bob Gusbar is about to grab an illusive 
Cardinal back. Later in the Louisville win, Gusbar 
stole a mid-air fumble and ran 65-yards 
unchallenged to paydirt. 

Everybody wants to get into the act and 

defensive back John Shuster, 26, was able 

to break up this pass play with the 

aid of an unidentified helper. 

Grandstand generals gathered for the ROTC Day 

game against Louisville to watch field general Dick 

Mostardo bark signals. Bob Gusbar, 80, Bob Alford, 73, 

Wilmet Saenger, 63, and Joe Chapon, 63, are un the line. 

Ray Shaker, 16, and Chuck Naso, 30, prepare to block for quarterback Dick 
Mostardo, 22, as he goes up to pass. Holding the line are Fred Rothfuss, 
84, Wilmet Saenger, 66, Bob Alford, 73, and Bob Hall, 76. The Mostardo passing 
arm was in the spotlight twice but the Kent passing game never got off the ground. 

Ups and Downs -Golden Flashes Had Them 


John Henry Martin has some difficulty getting this kick away. The 

gallant attempt by Dick Mostardo to block three charging Bowling' Green 

linemen is to no avail. The Falcons recovered the rolling foothall 

on the one-yard line and scored two plays later 




Concern for the success of their Flash teammates is 
shown in the facial expressions of tackle Bill 
Keberdle, 68, and halfback Arnold Jeter, 46, as they 
take a break on the sidelines. 

Coach Trevor Rees appears to be praying for a 
iVIAC championship as he signals players. 

Beat TU, Louisville 

Ready for their game in the Glass Bowl of Toledo 
the Golden Flashes won in a 14-7 game. Marty Gros- 
jean took over the left halfback post of the injured 
Martin to turn in an outstanding performance, while 
fullback Chuck Naso and guard Dick Barber were 
stellar attractions. The Flashes' taste of victory was 
literally socked down their throats when the Broncos 
of Western Michigan hit them with a 7-0 loss. The 
game was followed by a protest by Rees to the MAC 
for the illegal use of fists and elbows. Despite injur- 
ies the Flashes upset the Louisville Cardinals, 16-14. 
They drove 80 yards to a touchdown as quarterback 
Mostardo scored from the eight-yard line. End Bob 
Gusbar grabbed a mid-air fumble and jaunted 65 
yards to score in the traditional underdog win over 
the Louisville team. 

Co-captains, Fred Rothfuss. 84, and Dick Mostardo, 22, get together to churn out 

yardage against the Redskins of Miami. Both playing their final 

year for the Golden Flashes, they represented Kent in the 

post-season Gem Bowl in Erie, Pennsylvania on Thanksgiving day. 

Breaks hurt Flashes 

The action on the field, in the stands and on the side- 
lines are what gives football its air of excitement. 
Kent's up and down season did not live up to ex- 
pectations, but succeeded in providing Kent fans 
with many thrills. Finishing fourth in MAC compe- 
tition, the season was called by Rees a "disappoint- 
ment." The departure of seniors Steve Bodnar, Terry 
McCorry, Wayne Neel, Tom Richey, Fred Rothfuss 
and Dick Mostardo will leave gaps in the Kent lineup 
which must be filled. In addition to returning letter- 
men, a crop of freshman gridders will be given the 
test at spring football training. Coach Dick Paskert's 
yearling squad had a 1-2 record; defeating the Bowl- 
ing Green frosh, 13-3, and losing to Akron, 19-6, and 
Pittsburgh, 46-16.

Executing a perfect layup, Paul Walker, 12, is assured of another two-pointer 

while his opponent makes a last ditch effort to block the shot. Chester Thomas, 

40, looks on from mid-court. Coached well in fundamentals, the 

Flashes often display excellent shooting form. 

Basketball requires quick reflexes and Kent cagers, l.-r., Denny Bayer, 

Captain Jack Moore, Jim Maddox and Chester Thomas show the ability to make the 

changes from offensive to defensive play which are 

so important in the fast break offense used by Coach Bill Bertka. 


That's the way the ball bounces and all Jack Moore can 
do is wave good-bye. Charley Boykin, 32, is unaware 
that the ball is headed out of bounds, 
and Akron's Harold McClothan is unable to stop it. 

Kent loses tight tilts 

Coach Bill Bertka fielded a promising group of 
cagers in his 1959-60 team with the outlook described 
as the most promising it had ever been. Compiling 
a record of seven wins and 16 defeats, the Flashes 
were an example of a team which had not yet come 
of age. The record, however, does not speak correctly 
of the overall season. Kent lost 17 games by nine 
points or less, eight of them by less than six points. 
Bertka switched from a control type game to the fast 
break of offense to utilize some newly-found speed. 
Kent averaged 73.9 pomts per game on offense but 
gave up 77.5 points per game on defense. In spite of 
a 2-10 MAC mark, the Flashes were able to provide 
some hope for a brighter future. Oliver Wallace re- 
turned after fall quarter to lead the Kent squad with 
a 19.3 average for 17 games. Charley Boykin was 
high scorer with 342 points, and second with a 14.9 
average for all 23 games. Sophomore Harvey Hunt 
showed great improvement while turning in out- 
standing performances against Youngstown, Bald- 
win-Wallace and Bowling Green. Captain Jack 
Moore's play in the second Akron game and Pete 
Baltic's 20 point performance in the second half of 
the OU loss were leading show stoppers. Chester 
Thomas, Hal Estis, Jim Maddox, Jerry McGinty and 
Denny Bayer performed well. 

Chester Thomas listens to Coach Bill 
Bertka as he points out a flaw in 
KSU defense. 

Kent's high point man, Charley Boykin, is 

about to lose his constant companion, Akron's 

Alex Adams, by dribbling around him. Denny Bayer, 

52, is in the backround. 

Kent eager Jerry McGinty, 20, is really on the ball, oi 
that's the way it looks as a couple of 
high steppers try to out-jump each other and at the 
same time out-distance the ball. 

Senior Jack Moore wonders whether he 
should take a shot or wait lor his teammates 
to set up a play pattern. A team player, he 
decides to work for the good shot. 

Record 6-17 season 

In posting a losing season, the Flashes were often 
victims of a situation which easily could have gone 
either way. Kent came within a tap-in of tying 
the Bowling Green game in the closing seconds. The 
Flashes were often in the game until the final min- 
utes as in the Pepperdine game when only time and 
few points separated them from victory. Several 
games were decided one way or the other at the free 
throw line. Against Youngstown, Kent hit only 9 
of 11 charity throws while the Penguins hit on 14 
of 20. On the other hand, free throws kept the 
Flashes in the BG game when they were outgoaled 
from the field. Illness, injuries and ineligibility 
teamed up to stagger Kent's hopes for a winning sea- 
son. Wallace and Estis were not eligible until winter 
quarter. The charleyhorse frequently hobbled Flash 
cagers. The load is not expected to lighten next year. 
The team will take a trip to the West coast over the 
Christmas holidays. The Midwestern invitational 
tourney will be revived with some big name schools 
being suggested as possible additions to the Flashe's 
basketball schedule.

Three cagers graduate 

Light graduation losses will help the Kent cage team 
in their 1960-61 season. The Flashes will graduate 
only Captain Jack Moore, John Bayer, and Jerry 
McGinty. This leaves five juniors and six sopho- 
mores, plus freshmen who will be joining the varsity. 
Coach Harry Adams returned to Kent State after an 
absence of 11 years to take charge of the freshman 
team. He had been KSU's head basketball coach for 
the 1946-47 and 47-48 seasons. The frosh hoopsters 
posted a 6-8 record. For the first time a Kent State 
team played one of its own extension centers, Ashta- 
bula, with the Adams team coming out on top in 
both games. The University of Pittsburgh frosh fell 
to the yearling team, 70-58. Other impressive wins 
were over Youngstown, John Carroll, and Toledo. 
The junior Flashes lost to Bliss college, Cincinnati, 
and twice to Bowling Green frosh. Bob Fleisher, 
Denny Klug, Louis Domjan, Jerry Cleland and Bob 
Zelatel were leaders in scoring for the Kent fresh- 
men. Other players were Bill Connor, Tom Hauner, 
Mike Klima, Ken Koveval, Chuck Lemons, Joe 
Moore, Paul Serknis, Mitch Stone, George Washing- 
ton, Don Wenner and David Zak.

West Virginia and Bowling Green, MAC champions, 
the Flashes pushed the number of Begala wins to 
210, against 36 losses and two ties. Captain Pat Sem- 
ary took the 137-pound MAC title, and Jergen

Flashes surprise MAC 

When the 1959 baseball season rolled around, the 
Kent nine were figured to be at least one year away 
from a MAC flag. The big surprise came as the 
dust cleared long enough to find the Flashes in a 
do-or-die series with the Thundering Herd of Mar- 
shall college. Kent won the first game but dropped 
the second, 5-4, in 14 innings. Season's end found 
Coach Matt Resick's club one-half game out of first 
place, the highest MAC finish ever made by a Kent 
diamond team. Their 16-7-1 mark was a new record 
in victories. The doubleplay combination of short- 
stop Jerry Dolcini, second baseman Dick Rollins, 
and first baseman Paul Serra set a new mark at 23. 
The long list of record breaking feats includes one 
triple play, eight MAC wins, 145 runs, and a team 
batting average of .308. Pitcher Marty Kane, center- 
fielder Ed Warner and Rollins were named to the 
All-MAC first team. Jerry Dolcini was named to the 
third team. Rollins was also named to the NCAA 
All-District squad. Dick Paskert's freshman team 
lost their opener then reeled off seven straight wins 
behind the hitting of Don DiSanza.

Without much publicity and fanfare, the Kent State 
rifle team goes about its business quietly, but effec- 
tively. Compiling a 8-2 season record, the team had 
a 1394.1 average, one of the highest in recent years. 
Last year the KSU sharpshooters took the title in 
the Lake Erie conference with ten straight wins, the 
first perfect record in the conference. With all but 
one man returning from the 1958-59 team. Coach 
Charles Crusa again set his sights on the conference 
crown. Akron U. played the role of the spoiler as 
they halted the riflers winning streak at 13. Helping 
to boost Kent's team average was George Naswadi 
with 281.6, followed by Bill Gebhart, 281.3; Lou Bor-

KSU linksmen end season with 10-4 record 

Kent State's golf team, under the direction of How- 
ard Morrette, posted a 10-4 mark for the 1959 season. 
The linksmen finished fifth in the MAC champion- 
ship match and sixth in the 36-hole Ohio Intercolle- 
giate tourney. Captain Ron Vargo, who had low 
score in six of the golfers' matches, had the best in- 
dividual round with 70. Brad Tingle and Jon 
Wegenek trailed him with 71. Wegenek's low round 
paced the victory over Geneva. Bill Bosshard led 
the team in individual average.

Cinder men jolt records 

Although Kent thinclads recorded a losing season 
record of four wins and five losses in 1959, they were 
able to topple some school records. Captain Tom 
Maurer set a new mile time of 4; 22.5. Larry Colucci 
bettered the 440 time and Henry Woodard tied the 
100-yard dash mark. The 880-yard relay team chop- 
ped seconds off the old record. Dick FoUett threw 
the discus for a 147 foot 2 inch record. The Flashes 
placed fifth in both the All-Ohio and MAC meets. 
The cross country team split a 5-5 season mark. Gil 
Grey lead Coach Jay Fisher's harriers in scoring. 
The high point of the season was Kent's upset win 
over Oberlin and Ohio university to take second 
place in the All-Ohio meet at Baldwin-Wallace. 
Western Michigan won its third straight MAC meet 
as the Flashes finished last in a field of five. Bob 
Taipale, Steve (Ed) Simpson, and Bill Maurer close- 
ly followed Grey in the scoring department. Richie 
Twark is captain-elect of the 1960 cross-country 
team. The freshman cross country team won over 
Case frosh but lost to Ohio U. and Bowling Green. 

Tom Maurer takes the lead in a two 

mile race. Andy Bajcsa, a Hungarian 

refugee, set the record at KSU for 

the two mile in 1958 with a time of 9: 32.3.

Tennis team, l.-r., row 1: Pete Panis, Jerry Spaulding, Bill Foreman, Bob Battisti,

Karl Chesnutt. The tennis team finished the 1959 season with a 5-5 mark 
and a fifth in the Mid-American Conference tournament. 
Oberlin ended an eight game winning streak. 

Blanford Fuller displays the 

excellent form which made him an outstanding 

senior performer. He spent a great deal of time 

helping his teammates improve their game. 

Chesnutt rebuilds team 

In a year of rebuilding, the Kent tennis squad strug- 
gled to a 5-5 season record in 1959. The loss of several 
top players from the previous year left Coach Karl 
Chesnutt with an experience gap between the num- 
ber one man and the rest of the squad. Riding an 
eight game winning streak at the opening of the 
season, the netters dropped the first match to Ober- 
lin, 8-2, then recovered to win three straight. One 
cancelled match destroyed the chance to break 
above the .500 mark. Blanford Fuller lost in the 
MAC singles finals to Western Michigan's John 
Cook, 6-4, 6-1.

Mermen post 1-9 mark 

A last place finish in the Mid American Conference 
relays to open the season was the first indication that 
Coach Bill Hoover's tankers might be in for a dunk- 
ing in the regular season. Four straight losses were 
felt before Kent was able to bag the first and last win 
of the season by defeating Cincinnati, 48-46. The 
Flashes dropped the next meet by one point, 48-47, 
after leading Carnegie Tech until the final event. 
Kent lost to Albion, Central Michigan, Western 
Michigan, Ohio Wesleyan, Miami, Bowling Green, 
Ohio University and Slippery Rock. Some bright 
prospects shine through the dismal 1-9 record. Cap- 
tain Bill Kantor, Vern Piatt and Dick Campbell will 
be returning next year along with a promising crop 
of freshmen. Kantor and Piatt turned in consistent 
first and second finishes for the Flashes. The frosh 
won the MAC relays and posted wins over Miami, 
Ohio U. and Cincinnati frosh. Bill Pfeil, Forest 
Corey, Bill Pirtle, Joe Weber, Bob Bebiak, Ron 
Turbaczewski, and Mike France lift hopes for the 
Kent mermen for next year's season.
